in thread On Coding Standards and Code Reviews
I'm not sure allowing each developer to set their own indentation level works very well in teams doing pair programming. FWIW, Michael G Schwern
holds the same view as Damian:
Here's all I have to say about tabs. I expect the source to look the same no matter whose editor, pager, printer
or utility I run it through. Literal tabs violate this. The end.
I also notice that the
Parrot coding standard
mandates that "Indentation must consist only of spaces".
Though I agree with Conway and Schwern on this, the main reason I chose spaces over TABs is that is we currently do that (mostly), and I don't want to change over a million lines of legacy code. :-)
