Feature  Supported  Token  Example 

Strings  âœ“  "  "Hello world" 
MultiLine Comments  âœ“  { }  { A comment } 
Line Comments  âœ“     A comment 
Semantic Indentation  âœ“   https://github.com/purescript/documentation/blob/master/language/Syntax.md  Syntax is whitespace sensitive. The general rule of thumb is that declarations which span multiple lines should be indented past the column on which they were first defined on their subsequent lines. foo = bar + baz 

Doc comments  âœ“   https://github.com/purescript/documentation/blob/master/language/Syntax.md   `bool` performs case analysis for the `Boolean` data type, like an `if` statement. bool :: forall a. Boolean > a > a > a bool true x _ = x bool false _ x = x
