in reply to Formatting Strings Without Interpolating Whitespace

This answer seems so facile that I'm certain I must have missed something, but what if you remove \n from within your strings?

(In this case I prefer to use a heredoc, but a multi-line quoted string also works.)

    That was actually my first solution, but when I start increasing the complexity of the formatting from what I've shown here, that solution falls a bit short. Still, not a bad way to brute force it if I don't want to risk exploding my code all over the place by testing Xiong's solution.
