- Alternative spelling of CamelCase.
The convention in which a compound word, acronym, or phrase is spelled using medial capitals. CamelCase is used in a number of protocols, such as Extensible Markup Language (XML). ARCnet and WikiWiki are examples of CamelCase. The term is so named as the bumps of the medial capital letters are reminiscent of the humps of a camel. See also acronym and initialism.
The spelling of a hardware or software product with multiple capital letters; for example, "BlackBerry," "InterBase" and "CardSpace." Also called "BumpyCaps," "CamelCaps," "InterCaps" and "MixedCase," CamelCase purists claim that the word always begins with lower case, such as "camelCase" and not "CamelCase."
