This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

Let me Google that for you...

Short answer: a hyphen is shorter than a dash, and has different usage.

If you want a longer answer: see previously answered question on the matter.

    The convention for responses like this is to flag or close-vote (for those with the ability to). Answering, just to tell them it's google-able and is duplicate, will get nothing but downvotes. – Hank Feb 13 '17 at 14:59
  • Fair enough - sorry, I can't help but rebel occasionally ;-) – Bekahland Feb 13 '17 at 15:51
  • Doesn't bother me that you rebel; downvotes don't effect me and it will likely be deleted, anyways. Just advice for you :) – Hank Feb 13 '17 at 15:53
