bug#9608: 24.0.50; Emacs lisp reader thinks no-break space is 0x08a0 (sh


From: David M. Cooke
Subject: bug#9608: 24.0.50; Emacs lisp reader thinks no-break space is 0x08a0 (should be 0x00a0)

[zapped boilerplate header]

After reading through lread.c (I was writing an emacs lisp lexer for
syntax-highlighting in pygments), I discovered it treats the unicode
character U+08A0 as whitespace (with the comment "NBSP"). I believe this
was meant to be U+00A0 (NO-BREAK SPACE), as the code point U+08A0 has no
character assigned to it yet (it lies between the Samaritan and the
Devanagari blocks).

Additionally, you can see this by running the following lisp code:
(mapcar (lambda (sym) (string-as-unibyte (symbol-name sym) ))
        (read "(a b c\u00a0d e\u08a0f g \u00a0 h i \u08a0 j)"))

This gives the result
("a" "b" "c\302\240d" "e" "f" "g" "\302\240" "h" "i" "j")
where we can see U+00A0 (utf-8: "\302\240") is being treated as a
symbol-constituent character, whereas U+08A0 is whitespace.

The changes to the whitespace handling were introduced in bzr revision
78902 (on 2007-07-30, which is a few weeks after a discussion about
handling NO-BREAK SPACE on the mailing list). I'm guessing using 0x8a0
was just a thinko.

cheers,
