Spaces after a control sequence are gobbled and multiple spaces are skipped.

Braces around the filename are allowed because this function was added 
with the extensions to the TeX binary (which means it doesn’t work with 
Knuths original TeX), try this \input{ knuth.tex} to load a file with a 
space in the name.
