2 Lexical conventions

This section gives an informal account of some of the lexical conventions used in writing Scheme programs. For a formal syntax of Scheme, see section Formal syntax.

Upper and lower case forms of a letter are never distinguished except within character and string constants. For example, ‘Foo’ is the same identifier as ‘FOO’, and #x1AB is the same number as #X1ab.
