If you look at the very top line of ASP Classic code, you’ll often see a line that looks like this:
<%@ Language=VBScript %>
or maybe this:
<%@ Language=”VBScript” %>
What is that line all about?
When ASP is processing code on the server, the normal system default for the language processing is VBScript – that is, Visual Basic script. When you find helpful syntax on the web, that’s the language it’s usually being provided in.
For that reason, many ASP programmers start each page of code with the command, just to be clear. It might seem redundant, but it’s a safety net in case anybody changes the master setting on the server.
