Generating User-Friendly Identifiers

Starting with ASN.1/C# Tools version 4, you can use the -names compiler option to either replace dashes with underscores in type or field names and preserve capitalization or to remove dashes and capitalize the first letter of each name (in C#, dashes are not allowed, whereas in ASN.1 syntax, dashes are allowed).

The table below compares the names generated by default (the -names option is not specified) and the ones generated with the –names option:

ASN.1 C# (without the -names option) C# (the -names camelcase option is specified) C# (the -names schemacase option is specified)
The first letter is capitalized. The first letter following a dash is capitalized and dashes are removed. All letters are changed to lowercase, then the first letter and every letter following a dash is capitalized. Dashes are removed. Capitalization is preserved. Dashes are replaced by underscores.
