TabRen v1.2  (C) 2011-2019  Lorence Lombardo.

WTF is TabRen ?

TabRen renders text tabs to spaces. If the "r" switch is true then TabRen
will work in reverse and render the specified space number to tabs.


TabRen <in_file> <out_file> [space#] [r=reverse]

The default [space#] is 3.

TabRen was inspired by the fact that I was not able to work out how to set
the tab size in my favourite directory utilities text reader.
ie. DiskMaster 2.5.30a

I have the following lines in my DiskMaster configuration:-

AddMenu TEXT, TabRead, Confirm "Enter the tab size value you want." Continue
Cancel 3;extern c:TabRen %s t:temp.txt %r;Read t:temp.txt;Delete t:temp.txt
AddMenu TEXT, TabRen, extern c:TabRen %s %d%n
AddMenu TEXT, TabRen R, Confirm "Enter the space number you want to tab."
Continue Cancel 3;extern c:TabRen %s %d%n %r r
