Handling whitespace with parser combinator parsers

I'm new to this list so may have missed previous discussions relating to this. Anyway:

Is there any good alternatives to having to "sprinkle" whitespace parsers all over a parser implemented with parser combinators?

It kind of decreases the readability... ;-)

I'm interested in any ideas. Would like a full picture of the different solutions out there?

Are people actually doing both lexing and parsing in the same framework? If so, how do you handle whitespace?

Best Regards,
