This code shows what Daniel Andersson was talking about. I changed the "whitespace" references in the documentation that Daniel mentioned to say spaces. Also I changed "ignore space at the start of the field" to "ignore spaces at the start of the field" due to Terry's confusion.
Let me know of any errors or extra changes that are needed.
