expand blindly replaces 1 tab with 8 spaces,so it's not fit for this task...

    Weird - at least this version of expand works for me, and the source code suggests that it should work just as it does:

    Q:\>copy con test.txt blah a blah ^Z 1 file(s) copied. Q:\>perl -w expand.pl test.txt blah a blah Q:\>perl -w expand.pl test.txt|perl -ple "s!\t!x!g" blah a blah Q:\>perl -w expand.pl test.txt|perl -ple "s! !_!g" blah____a_______blah Q:\>type test.txt|perl -ple "s! !_!g" blah a blah

    If expand is not working for you, maybe the code I linked to does work for you and you can reuse that?
