I had a quick question that came to me while experimenting a bit with the
print statement. Normally print gives you one space between the arguments of
the print statement and we've covered how to have no spaces between its
arguments. Now is there a way for you to (for whatever reason) have more
than one space between the arguments of the print statement (other than, for
example, placing spaces in the string itself i.e. print "Hello, ",
Also, is there a way to still use single quotes and avoid the problems with
apostrophes in the string? Some sort of escape character, perhaps (like a
backslash in bash)?
