Subject:Why configuration directives are all case sensitive?
View as plain text  
Hi,

I'm just curious why MySQL parses its configuration directives (i.e., the
ones in my.cnf) in a case sensitive way?

For example, Having "Port=3309", will receive "unknown variable 'Port=3309".

I guess there must be some concern for this. Could anyone tell me why?

Thanks,
Tianyin
