'[PIC]: Turning off case sensitivity in MPLAB?'
2001\10\19@143742 by Jeff DeMaagd

I am using MPLAB 5.4 and I am curious if there is a way to turn off case
sensitivity somewhere.  I know that MPASM has a command flag to do so but I
can't find it within MPLAB, I am curious if the window I am thinking of was
removed.

Thanks!

Jeff

You can turn off case senistivity in MPLAB assembler by going to
Project:Edit Project:Node Properties, where thankfully  there's a switch.

OOOOH! my favorite pet peeve.

Now, why would anybody ever want to turn case sensitivity on?  Because they
need to beat themselves over the head looking for nitpicky errors?

I remember Fortran, which was so sensitive to case, punctuation, and so on
that a     single   extra    space  in    your    code   would create a
whole deck full of errors (yes, we used card punched decks.)  Does anybody
want to go back to that?

Sure, use case to make your code readable.  But why do compilers have to
force it on us?

Whew, now I feel better.

The main reason for wanting that is, to be able to assemble source
generated by a tool, such as a C compiler, without mangling the names
(esp. variable names and function names etc)  beyond hope of human
recognition. I think that you will find that tools generating asm from C
or Pascal or whatever require you to turn on case sensitivity before
compiling with an assembler (not just MPASM).

I find that using case to differentiate certain elements greatly improves
readability and reduces errors, at least for me. I use lowercase
mnemonics, lowercase local labels, capital initial on global labels and
variables, and all caps on defined (set) symbols. I also make a point of
using a base indicator on every number I use especially if greater than 7
decimal, even though I set the radix in a list directive first thing in
the code. So when I read my code later I can read it (and surprise
myself!). ;-).

Hi,

Try the menu "project" -> edit project -> select your .HEX file in the
"project files"box

click on the "node properties" button

check the "case sensitivity" off.

I hope it help you. Best wishes.

Eduardo.



Ps.: Since I've started on MPLAB 4 till now, it works. I'm currently using
MPLAB 5.3.

       Click project - edit, then slick on the hex file, then click node
properties. Selecte case sensitivity off.
