I've noticed that in many programming languages, small stuff matters, like capitalization. Why did the creators make capitalization matter? I don't see the point in that, it just makes the syntax more complicated.

Well I dont know about what programming language you are talking but in VB,GML,Html,pascal and some other languages Capz does not make any diff! ow and VB had that function Option Explicit it will correct some small errors :)

Yup, VB doesn't care what you have capitalized. I'm not sure why they made it that way but it may have been from the Unix/Linux world that it was adopted. Personally, I like it. Even in languages where capitalization doesn't matter I keep the same case on all my variables.
