TABS v3by V. Buerg, mods by J.E. Arkay 10/90

Replaces strings of spaces with tabs to save space. It assumes your tab stops
are every 8 columns.
Leaves anything in 'quotes' or "double quotes" unmodified, so you can use it
on source code files.
Eliminates trailing spaces and tabs.

For files from programs written by those with unfortunate toilet training
experiences, it:
Replaces those 1-space tabs in MicroSoft text files with a single space.
Replaces any lone LF or CR with CR, LF (LF=line feed=0Ah, CR=carriage return
=0Dh). This is the ASCII standard.

Syntax:TABS [d:\path\]infile.ext [d:\path\]outfile.ext [/d]
final /d replaces tabs with spaces

Just run it to show these instructions.

Revisions:
Does NOT add an EOF (1Ah) to the end of the file, and does not rely on
an EOF character to find the end of the file.
Fixed bugs which left tabs on a last line of blanks, and lines longer
than max length (changed to 80 characters) if there was a tab near the end.
Changed to replace lone CR's with CR, LF pairs rather than ignoring
them.
