Whitespace and Formatting

White Space

White space is used to identify blocks of code. Python enforces this and will raise errors when this is not included and fail to run s expected.

Key words that should be followed by an indented block are def, class, if, while, for, elif, else, try, with, except and finally.

It is recommended that each block should be indented with 4 spaces. Though you can use tabs. The key point here is to be consistent, there is nothing worse than maintaining code that has been inconstant.

Case Sensitivity

Python is case sensitive so care and consistency is required when naming objects.
