2. Lexical conventions

2.1 Identifiers  
2.2 Whitespace and comments  
2.3 Other notations  

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 7.1 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.
