Text::Tabs(3)          Perl Programmers Reference Guide          Text::Tabs(3)



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.
