       Occasionally, you can't use just a `/g' to get all the changes to
       occur that you might want.  Here are two common cases:
    ...
          # expand tabs to 8-column spacing
          1 while s/\t+/' ' x (length($&)*8 - length($`)%8)/e;
    
  3. or download this
    
        print "\et" x ($tab/8), ' ' x ($tab%8);    # tab over
