Spaced line continuations (\)

When a value gets overly long, or you would like to split it into multiple lines for readability (e.g. for commandline flags or GET parameters) you can use line continuations:

A commandline poem: roses --are-red
\                         --violets are-blue
\                         --whitespace-is-ignored

With a backslash (\) you declare a spaced line continuation, whatever you write on that line is appended to the end of the field before it, separated by a single space. Note that like everywhere else in eno, whitespace plays no role, so this is equivalent of the above example:

A commandline poem:
    \ roses --are-red
          \ --violets are-blue
          
      \ --whitespace-is-ignored
