I couldn't find a answer to this doing a search... should I distribute ROM's in Lower Case, Upper Case or doesn't it matter? the ROM extensions are going to be the PCB location and they are much easier to read in Upper case.... .1L vs .1l for example. I didn't know if this was breaking some convention in the driver requirements tho.
In the case of MAME in almost all instances, lowercase *IS* uppercase.
I can understand L vs l or I vs i from looking at them, but in those boards are there both "L" and an "I" locations? I don't think this exists so there should be no confusion. In fact, you'll rarely find lowercase letters in any label you see on a PCB outside of perhaps a company, game name, or another non-critical part of a label. There are no labels that I am aware of that require Uppercase Vs. Lowercase to determine versioning or revision. The lowercase that MAME insists for documentation of machines is a uniformity for both the eyes when dealing with them as well as sensitivity towards any operating system where difference in case does matter (most non-Windows) in identity and renaming, ensuring ease of use for developers and end users.
