underline/underscore
Do the two words mean the same thing?
Or:
1. underline = a line directly under letters,
words, etc.?
2. underscore = a line underneath between
letters? between___words
Thank you.

  • underscore (computer technology)
  • The underscore character (_) is often used to make file, field and variable names more readable when blank spaces are not allowed. For example, NOVEL_1A.DOC, FIRST_NAME and StartRoutine.

    Many Japanese call () as an underbar. I often see Japanese women drinking and writing an underbar into their e-mail at an underbar in Tokyo.

    Koreans also call it that.

OK now, Paco-- what's an underbar in Tokyo? I know nomiyas and izakayas and snacks, but I don't know underbars.

Hello Mr Micaweber

"Underbar" for (_) is kind of Japanglish and Coreanglish. I think "underbar" for "underground bar" (chika sakaba) is Swenglish (Swedish-English). But there is indeed a bar named "Underbar" in Shibuya.

Thanks Paco-- maybe we can meet there for a drink sometime, eh?
Good morning. MM

Thank you for the kind proposal. But I have a problem that I get soon sleepy even with a bit of drink. So...

Enjoy the cool weather today!

I don't think Paco wants to meet me, Roro-- he knows that non-alcoholic beverages are also available. Maybe you can convince him to let his hair down.
I cannot resist my desire to quote:
