NAME
       Perl::Critic::Policy::CodeLayout::ProhibitHardTabs - Use spaces instead of tabs.

AFFILIATION
       This Policy is part of the core Perl::Critic distribution.

DESCRIPTION
       Putting hard tabs in your source code (or POD) is one of the worst things you can do to
       your co-workers and colleagues, especially if those tabs are anywhere other than a leading
       position.  Because various applications and devices represent tabs differently, they can
       cause you code to look vastly different to other people.  Any decent editor can be
       configured to expand tabs into spaces.  Perl::Tidy also does this for you.

       This Policy catches all tabs in your source code, including POD, quotes, and HEREDOCs.
       The contents of the "__DATA__" section are not examined.

CONFIGURATION
       Hard tabs in a string are always forbidden (use "\t" instead).  But hard tabs in a leading
       position are allowed when they are used to indent code statements, "qw()" word lists, and
       regular expressions with the "/x" modifier.  However, if you want to forbid all tabs
       everywhere, then add this to your .perlcriticrc file:

	   [CodeLayout::ProhibitHardTabs]
	   allow_leading_tabs = 0

NOTES
       Beware that Perl::Critic may report the location of the string that contains the tab, not
       the actual location of the tab, so you may need to do some hunting.  I'll try and fix this
       in the future.
