Non-breaking space

Postby Phil Last on Thu Aug 26, 2010 8:44 pm

I've complained in the past that indents such as these:

this←{ ⍝ line and the last have 1 leading blank each
second←{ ⍝ has 5
third←line has 9
}back to 5
}
are squeezed back to the margin when displayed in this forum.
I thank both Peter-Michael and Pierre for pointing out that using U+00A0, non-breaking space,  , ⎕UCS 160 instead of leading blanks does the trick. The easiest way I've found is to type and enter:
      ⎕ucs 160
into the session and cut and paste it as many times as I need here as I have done 6 times in the line above. And below is the dummy dfn that's squeezed above but with the same treatment applied to it:

 this←{ ⍝ line and the last have 1 leading blank each
     second←{ ⍝ has 5
         third←line has 9
     }back to 5
 }
