In FatScript, whitespace and indentation are irrelevant, yet they are very welcome to make the code more readable and easier to understand.


  • A newline character (\n) indicates the end of an expression, except when:
    • the last token on the line is an operator
    • the first token of the next line is a non-unary operator
    • using parentheses to group expressions
  • Expressions can be on the same line if separated by comma (,) or semicolon (;)


Comments start with #, and are terminated by a newline:

a = 5  # this is a comment


FatScript does not support multiline comments at the moment. Additionally, text literals may end up as a valid return value if left as the last standing line, due to the auto-return feature. Therefore, it is recommended to stick to the single line comment format.
