Now that you know how to compile JScript .NET, you can open any text editor and start coding in the new language. The jsc.exe compiler will give you immediate feedback on your syntax errors.

In this column we'll show you the major differences between JavaScript and JScript .NET. We will not cover all the differences--that'll take a few columns to do. Here, we'll focus instead on new principles and major concepts that are not found in JavaScript.
