Creating variables

How to create a variable name

A variable name must consist of Latin letters or numbers. Numbers mustn't be at the beginning of the variable name.

To make a variable from several words, you can write it as follows:

  1. userNewPhone
  2. user_new_phone

For convenience, you can shorten words in long variables, for example, usNph.
