EXPTAB.EXE Executable version of EXPTAB compiled with Turbo C++

EXPTAB.DOC This doumentation file


Borland's Turbo language editors contain optimal fill options for
source code lines which insert tab characters instead of consecutive
spaces. When viewing these files in text editors or in the DOS TYPE
command, default tab expansion spacing may differ. Expansion of the
tabs leaves source code illegible. EXPTAB replaces tab characters
with a user-specified number of spaces to allow the files to be
viewed under ASCII editors, or to be printed via the DOS PRINT
command or via DOS COPY to a line printer.

EXPTAB uses the following syntax:

EXPTAB sourcefile [destfile] [tabsize]

If destfile is not specified, the tabs are expanded within the source
file. Default tab spacing is two spaces (or the value of
DEFAULT_TAB_SIZE in the EXPTAB.C source) if the user does not specify
a tab spacing on the command line. Note that the destination file
should be specified before the tabsize if both optional parameters are
used.
