What is the easiest way to skip forward to the first whitespace character after the current cursor? I used to do it just by searching for a space (when I knew there was one there), but now that seems to behave like
forward-whitespace (not sure when this behavior switched, maybe when I transitioned to emacs 24. This is a function I need all the time when defining macros interactively.
forward-whitespace doesn't work for me because it skips to the last whitespace character in the first block of whitespace after the current cursor.
