What it does#

Checks if one space is used after inline comments.

Why is this bad?#

An inline comment is a comment on the same line as a statement.

Per PEP 8, inline comments should start with a # and a single space.


x = x + 1  #Increment x
x = x + 1  #  Increment x
x = x + 1  # \xa0Increment x

Use instead:

x = x + 1  # Increment x
x = x + 1    # Increment x
