ASP vs COLDFUSION reference

This is more of a reference question than an actual code question.

I was looking for a syntax comparison of ASP and CFM from the asp view point

Basically something like this:

.asp

If then
else
end if

.cfm

<CFIF>
<CFELSE>
</CFIF>

You get the point a refernce guide that compares asp functions, etc to coldfusion and then gives visual examples of how to use them.

I am pretty desperate, I only have a few weeks to learn coldfusion, and I learn VERY well visually.  I am an experienced .asp developer, so I figured if there was a reference book that compared all the syntaxand functions of both,, that would be awesome.

The points are high because i need this NOW and I need a GOOD reference.

I have been to Microsofts asp/vbscript/function refernece and I have been to macromedias cfm/functions reference, but I was lookg for text that brings the two together with examples.

Thanks

check this link out...

see u won't get comparison examples of asp and cf...
the cf documentation is the best and easy to understand stuff.

if u know asp then i don't think it will take u any time to grasp cf..

in asp if it request.form then in cf its just form.fieldname or just fieldname and so on.

u have <cfloop instead while and for loops
it very simple to understand, i a saying this because i used to be a asp programmer long back, and its an added advantage if u already know how the web forms and thing work.

and if u have any hassles, u will always get the best  help out here in EE :-)

I don't know of any asp->cf conversion books, though if you post questions about "how does this asp convert to cf" we can help you.  In the mean time, I'd look for example code of what you are trying to do and ask for explainations... additionally, i'd sugguest looking at the cf docs.

Hi,

this is in no way a complete reference, but, it compares some language features of ASP vs. CFML.

HTH,

OK, I would like this question removed.  Obviously no reference exists for exactly what I was looking for.  I already know about asking other members, that is what this board is for, so...

How do I cancel this question??

Whoa,
You can't just delete the question becasue the answer was not want you wanted to hear.
You must accept the fact that there is no reference known to the experts.
You could split points.

See the EE guide:

<<The correct answer to some questions is "you can't do that"  
Sometimes, you'll get an answer that isn't what you want to hear; that doesn't make it a bad answer. When you ask a question, the assumption is that you don't know the answer, so how you ask the question is important. If you ask "how do I keep my HTML code hidden", the only answer that is legitmate is "don't post in on the Internet" -- and the fact that you don't like it carries no weight. Further, the fact that you offered points means that the person who first tells you "you can't do that" is correct, and deserves the points.>>
