The words spelled as they are in the sentence are no more computer code than a store sign that says price = $1.00 is computer code.The OP's whole point is to blow off the use of capitals. Is there Boolean True, true and TRUE that are the same? Only if you define them to be so and then you have define anything to be "I Haz".
By my logic, code words in English sentences are not code. Capitalize that.

You're both saying you also believe digitalWrite() should be capitalized if it is the first word in the sentence?

What are you all arguing about?Programming languages are a special construct for precise purposes - not at all the same as natural spoken languages.There is a precise version of natural language - it's called a legal document. That's pretty hard for a non-specialist to understand as well. Allan
That's because English sentences are NOT source code so it doesn't matter if the D is capitalized.
Clarity should always be the goal of written material, especially if it is instructional.I think the point is, don't start a prose sentence with a code word that isn't capitalized. Even if it means using a couple extra words. If you are writing about code, consider using a different font for something like digitalWrite.
