Most of the real programmers use spaces instead of tabs. :-)

Seriously, tabs are not *that* bad if everyone could just settle on a spacing for them (that isn't 8). Kinda like 8-bit character encodings, it works OK as long as everyone is "on the same page". (If only...) The only language I know getting serious hiccups from tabs is Python. --anders

That's because someone had a brain-aneurism thought about using whitespace indentation for scope control. -- Regards, James Dunne

heheh, we've already gone over this once, but it was the other way around. We were talking about python, then we started talkig about how evil the tab character is!

But... I love tabs! They're great for indentation, but they should not be combined with spaces. I *hate* arrowing through a bunch of spaces to get to the start of a statement - tabs go much quicker. Plus it's such a hassle to reindent code with spaces when you're OCD about indentation and code readability... -- Regards, James Dunne

Yes, any decent editor will do that. Tabs are more storage efficient.

Yeah, I have a big case of it... A co-worker moved an icon on my desktop just to invoke my knee-jerk response of moving it back while trying to collaborate on some work. =P It really bugged me and I can't explain why; needless to say it was quite a laugh...for him -- Regards, James Dunne
