How EP read text from .idf file: are input values case sensitive and blank space sensitive e.g would " StringValue on that" refer to "STRINGVALUE ON THAT"? Thanks

Case insentive with leading and trailing space trimming. So yes, " StringValue on that" is interpreted as "STRINGVALUE ON THAT", and this is why when you look at eplusout.err the warnings/errors show object names as upper case.
