Language Syntax

The low-level assembly language is not sensitive to white-space - only comments pay attention to line breaks. Entire programs may be written on a single line, though this is not recommended for the sake of readability. This is possible because all parameter counts are predetermined; thus the parser merely consumes the required number of tokens for each token type (which are also predefined) as it iterates over the token stream passed from the lexer - this results in fast parsing.
