in thread Tabs vs Spaces lets give this a go

Tab characters should never be used in source code. They are far too prone to being abused.

Perl is also prone to being abused, should we swich to python?

:-)
Remember the golden rule - never use tabs for indentation.

The golden rule is never mix the twp and everyone is happy.

    No. Perl is abused in amusing and educational ways. Python uses indentation in obscene ways that exacerbate the tab issue beyond reason. :-)

    Actually the golden rule is: "He who has the gold rules". All Evan actually has to do is get enough money then he can pay everyone to follow his style guidelines and have shot anyone who doesn't.
