    Default One space or two after a full-stop?

    I was taught "two spaces after a full stop, one after a comma", but it's all too rare these days that I find anyone else who adds two spaces after a full stop.

    So here I am looking at a document and wondering if to start adding extra spaces...




    while (!dead) printf("I honestly love my job ");

    It was always two spaces 20-something years ago when I first learned to use a typewriter and I guess I've just kept on doing it.

    I was miserable and depressed, but CUK turned it all around. Now I'm depressed and miserable.
