in reply to The One True Style of indentation:

Wow. I probably shouldn't be saying this on my first day here, but here goes.
I can't believe how many of y'all said tab. I should probably just re-map one
of my meta keys to

s/\t/  /g;
    ^
two spaces!

    Yes! Another believer! Oh, and here's a utility script of mine, detab:
    #!/usr/bin/perl -pi # can't use die() in BEGIN -- it looks funny :( BEGIN { $sp = shift or warn("usage: detab SP files...\n") and exit } s/^(\t+)/" " x ($sp * length $1)/eg;
    To cleanse your nasty tabbed files, simply run detab 2 foo.pl, and your leading tabs are replaced with 2 spaces per tab. The way japhy intended.

      A slightly different way to do that:
      perl -pi -e 's/\G\t/ /g' foo.pl
      (Adapted from a "replace-leading-zeros-with-spaces" oneliner I seem to remember)

      Update: looks like the original came from merlyn after dominus offered a suggestion similar to japhy's

      -Blake

        Ummm-- I think that was a 'dictum', not a suggestion...
