Capitalization of Functions in Python.

While coding in Python will all functions be lower-cased (ex. "print") or will there be a time when they will be upper-cased? Why is this; is it because that's the way it was made or is there some importance to this?

Thanks in advance,

V/R Lucas

Python, like most modern languages, is case-sensitive. An identifier spelled with a capital letter represents something entirely different than one spelled in lower case.

So yes, to be recognized, Python keywords must be used as they were designed.
