Hi Anuj,
Thanks for the advice. I have gone thru that posting (link that you have mentioned).What I was looking for was something like the Variable declaration,Syntax,File Access etc., that is what I was reffering to as " Technical Differences'.The differences mentioned in the forum were more related to the environment and not what i was in need of.

Thanks again.
Regards,
Kumar
