Text::Tabs -- expand and unexpand tabs per the unix expand

Text::Tabs -- expand and unexpand tabs per the unix expand


NAME

Text::Tabs -- expand and unexpand tabs per the unix expand(1) and unexpand(1)


SYNOPSIS


  use Text::Tabs;

  $tabstop = 4;

  @lines_without_tabs = expand(@lines_with_tabs);

  @lines_with_tabs = unexpand(@lines_without_tabs);


DESCRIPTION

Text::Tabs does about what the unix utilities expand(1) and unexpand(1) do. Given a line with tabs in it, expand will replace the tabs with the appropriate number of spaces. Given a line with or without tabs in it, unexpand will add tabs when it can save bytes by doing so. Invisible compression with plain ascii!


BUGS

expand doesn't handle newlines very quickly -- do not feed it an entire document in one string. Instead feed it an array of lines.
