13.4 Omitting the Space After a Definition Name

As a matter of style or as demanded by the syntax of a programming language, you may wish to omit any space after a name in a definition, occurring before an opening bracket. To do this, set the ‘txidefnamenospace’ flag (see @set and @value). For example, this input

@set txidefnamenospace
@deffn Builtin index (string, substring)
@end deffn

produces the following:

Builtin: index(string, substring)
