This script is influenced by a question on stackoverflow on how to display space characters in a window. By default it uses the character for a space.

Use the :ShowWhiteToggle command to toggle display of spaces in the current window. Alternatively you can use the normal mode mapping '\ws'
install details
simply source the file and the plugin will be installed automatically
:e show-whitespace-<nr>.vmb
:so %

And afterwards, have a look at the documentation: :h ShowWhitespace.txt

Alternatively, use the plugin manager of your choice.
