How can I insert spaces in output string?
Similar to \t for tab what is the character for space?

Also is there any site where there is a list of these characters?

A space between single quotes in the source code is a Space char.

e.g.


If you want something that uses more toner from your laser printer, you could use the C type /xxx escape sequence (where xxx is an octal number).

'\t' = '\011'
' ' = '\040'

Here is page with the whole list.
TAB is '\t'
CR is '\r'
LF is '\n'
BS is '\b'
FF is '\f'

Java introduces Unicode escape sequences. \uxxxx where xxxx is a four hexadecimal digit Unicode number. For a Space use '\u0020'.
