Chapter 18. Scripting

Chapter 18. Scripting

When Allaire released ColdFusion 4.0, they introduced a new server-side scripting language called CFScript. CFScript is similar in appearance to JavaScript and allows you to write sections of code in your templates using a more concise format than tag-based CFML. CFScript isn't meant to replace the CFML language; it just provides you with a choice for coding your pages. Additionally, with the introduction of ColdFusion 5.0, CFScript includes the ability to create user-defined functions. Those used to programming in JavaScript will find the CFScript constructs quite familiar.

This chapter covers everything you need to know about the CFScript language, along with examples.
