English term or phrase: Certain types, such as arrays and strings, are special cased by the compiler
An article on MSIL.
Does "special-cased" mean to compile the code by converting capital letters to small letters or vice versa? Any advise wil be appreciated.

Explanation:
I'm not sure if this is precisely the way I would put it, but the data types mentioned are treated in a special way by the compiler, not in the same way as other data types. They are treated as special cases. "Special cased" is one of those verbs they should not have invented, because the proper way to say this is not difficult or laborious. But they do it all the time. I hope this helps.

Thank you for your prompt and clear explanation. So the "case" in this context has nothing to do with "case" as in "case-sensitive"?

agree  Maynard Hogg: English grammar requires a hyphen, but I share your aversion to the verb "special-case."

  -> It does, doesn't it? See what you avoid by not verb-creating at the hat-dropping?
