Looks like there's a little tab-vs-spaces war going on within the dev team: http://www.dsource.org/projects/phobos/changeset/758 Author: Bartosz Message: de-tabified Files: * trunk/phobos/internal/object.d (modified) (54 diffs) http://www.dsource.org/projects/phobos/changeset/761 Author: walter Message: change opEquals to return bool [... and changed spaces to tabs] Files: * trunk/phobos/internal/object.d (modified) (50 diffs) * ... and a spate of other files where spaces were changed to tabs Tabs are evil! Let the flame war begin! --bb

I think it's less "tabs are evil" and more "Walter's indentation style is evil." More power to Bartosz ;)

The only way to avoid a tab war is to make the only legal use of white space so horrid* that you can't edit the language without a pretty printer. Then everyone get there own way. *the only valid WS is a single tab but only if it is needed to make things lex correctly. <G>

Or you can restrict indentation to a single valid style. Cf. makefiles.

The idea is to have a system that is SO bad that *everyone* hates. It's mostly a joke around the idea that with good enough pretty printers tabs, spaces and indenting styles are irrelevant.

I tried that, but it's really hard to wash beer off your monitor when it dries. -Steve
