The constant space
The program-global constant
space has the data type
c, length 1, and contains a blank character.
space constant, trailing blanks are ignored at most operand positions,
as for all character-like fields with fixed lengths. The
space constant must therefore not be used in these positions.
The result of the following concatenation is a string
with exactly one blank. The blank characters in the first two
are ignored. Blank characters are only respected after
SEPARATED BY. The example applies with the same result (except for
space) to a
text field literal
' ' or
c with exactly one blank character.
DATA text TYPE string. CONCATENATE space space INTO text SEPARATED BY space.
