(NOT CRIPPLEWARE,NAGWARE OR SHAREWARE) ... FREEWARE !
This simple program removes TAB characters from text files, and inserts
the appropriate number of spaces in place of that tab. TabRemover will
make sure that all the columns line up properly as they did with normal
tabs. The user may specify how many spaces will replace each TAB
character. TabRemov will create a file called OUT.TXT, which will have
the processed text file. The original is NOT changed.
TABREMOV [infile] [n spaces]
[infile] is the file to be processed
[n spaces] is the number of spaces which a single tab is to be replaced by
Using TabRemov is very easy. Simply type the following at the DOS
prompt (note : this example requires that TabRemov is in the current dir
or in the search PATH).
TABREMOV foo.txt 4
This will cause TABREMOV to process the file foo.txt, and replace each tab
with 4 spaces. Original columns are always preserved.
Note that there is no / or - preceding any arguments.
