Hello, It seems that most of the time Mathematica ignores whitespace. e.g. all of the following evaluate with no problem: Sin [ Pi/2 ] Sin [ Pi/2 ] However, Sin [Pi/2] does not. Is that just the way it is? The reason I ask, is because I would like to be able to use brackets '[,]' as I do braces in C/C++ to help show the 'flow' of logic (within larger functions obviously), but obviously Module[] doesn't work if it sees a cr/lf before the opening bracket. Thanks, Matt
