3.8 Inserting End of Line Markers
An end of line marker/character can be inserted into the text using the @+ sequence. This is exactly equivalent to a real end of line in the text at the point where it occurs. While this feature may sound rather useless, it is very useful for laying out the input file. For example, the following input data for a database program
Animal = Kangaroo Size = Medium Speed = Fast Animal = Sloth Size = Medium Speed = Slow Animal = Walrus Size = Big Speed = Medium
can be converted into
Animal = Kangaroo @+Size = Medium @+Speed = Fast @+ Animal = Sloth @+Size = Medium @+Speed = Slow @+ Animal = Walrus @+Size = Big @+Speed = Medium @+
which is easier to read, and more easily allows comparisons between records.
