Identifiers are names given to identify a specific entity (e.g. a variable, function, constant, object, etc), allowing them to be referred to.

 

Just like algebraic substitutions in maths.

 

The names can consist of the 26 letters of the Latin alphabet (upper/lower case), the 10 Arabic/Western numerals and the ASCII underscore character _
