Whitespace

“Whitespace” is a term that refers to “space” characters that you use to separate programming code tokens, such as the spacebar space, and the tab character. They are considered interchangeable in type and quantity - using two spaces usually has the same effect as using one space, one tab, and so forth.

Harlowe tries to also recognise most forms of Unicode-defined whitespace, including the quads, the per-em and per-en spaces, but not the zero-width space characters (as they may cause confusion and syntax errors if unnoticed in your code).
