Oh yeah, and the attached file is a menu.json that turns off the PW1/2 front light when the user sets it to 0 using the menu. Its completely self-contained.
An **extremely bad idea** (tm).

There isn't a text file reading application that can not skip whitespace and its comment syntax fast and efficiently.

The human mind needs that whitespace, its structure and the comments for comprehension, both now and in the future.
Particularly in the future.


An example of whitespace structure and code comprehensibility:

A snippet of the author's comments:

This is a 32-bit multitasking operating system for x86 computers, with GUI and filesystem, support for loading and executing user applications in elf binary format, with ps2 mouse and keyboard drivers, and vesa graphics. And a command shell. And an application - a simple text-file viewer.
And no, it wasn't written by Lab126's Java department.
