\ -> Commands -> #option -> WhiteSpace


This #option command can be used to adjust the characters that PPWIZARD treats as whitespace. A space is always treated as whitespace. Each extra character you define will be converted to a real space as lines are read from files.

The default whitespace for unix will ensure that PC based files whose lines end with carriage return then linefeed and may have end of file characters embedded in the file can be read without conversion.


The following example shows how to define the "~" and form feed (hex code '0C') characters as whitespace. In a unix environment we have removed the default whitespace conversions.

PPWIZARD INPUT.IT /Option:WhiteSpace="{x0C}~"
