Case sensitive and "i"
« on: Jan 18, 2011, 04:42 PM »
My experiments indicate that Mintoris Basic is case sensitive. So the variable "i" is not the same as "I". I only have a soft keyboard so what follows may not apply to machines with a real keyboard. On my machine the letter "i" on it's own (not enclosed in inverted commas or in brackets) is always "corrected" to an "I". This means that if you write your program on your phone be very careful about using "i" as a counter in "for next" loops because you may find that the initial "i" has been capitalized, while the "i" inside the loop has not. This means that they are in fact different variables.

Chuck, I was testing the 4.3 beta and just logged on to report this -- it is still an issue.

This may be a function of the soft keyboard and not part of the Basic Editor.

Try:

Steps to Disable Auto-Capitalization

    Navigate to the “Settings” found in your Android Apps.
    Select “Language & Keyboard” in the “Settings” menu.
    Select “Android Keyboard”.
    Uncheck the box for “Auto-capitalization”.

I also made a change to the text input box.  It doesn't act this way on my phone so I can't tell if it is fixed.

Please disregard; I thought I had read that variables were not case-sensitive, but I was mistaken.
There is no auto-capitalization issue on my phone, with or without the auto-cap setting on.
