A8.1 Definitions Used in This Document

Whitespace is a contiguous sequence of newline, space, and tab characters. A token is any contiguous sequence of nonwhitespace characters—delimited by start-of-file, whitespace, or end-of-file.

Any token beginning with # is ignored, together with any tokens up to (but not including) the next newline character.

Any token that starts with the " character continues until another " followed by whitespace. The closing " must be on the same line as the opening " .

Any token beginning with $ is a section name. Each section is followed by a list of items bracketed by { and }. Sections may be nested at any point. Unrecognized sections are parsed, but the contents are completely ignored (basically, this means that any curly brackets should nest properly).
