Part: VII Appendixes > Hand Coding ColdFusion

Hand Coding ColdFusion

If you need to use ColdFusion at an advanced level, you may need to move beyond CFML tags. Dreamweaver or any other application environment for that matter, will not write out the code for you. For advanced ColdFusion use, you may need to write code in CFScript.

CFScript provides the same and, in some cases, extended functionality that CFML tags do. CFScript has a syntax similar to JavaScript, and some programmers prefer to use CFScript rather than CFML tags because they are more used to coding in this fashion. CFScript gives the programmer some richer program-flow constructs, and usually CFScript code runs slightly faster than CFML; this may be a consideration on very busy Web sites. You can write some parts of the code using CFML tags and other parts in CFScript. CFML tags can use functions written in CFScript.
