RedHat 9 (Linux i386) - man page for text::tabs (redhat section 3pm)

Text::Tabs(3pm) 		 Perl Programmers Reference Guide		  Text::Tabs(3pm)

NAME
       Text::Tabs -- expand and unexpand tabs per the unix expand(1) and unexpand(1)

SYNOPSIS
	 use Text::Tabs;

	 $tabstop = 4;
	 @lines_without_tabs = expand(@lines_with_tabs);
	 @lines_with_tabs = unexpand(@lines_without_tabs);

DESCRIPTION
       Text::Tabs does about what the unix utilities expand(1) and unexpand(1) do.  Given a line
       with tabs in it, expand will replace the tabs with the appropriate number of spaces.
       Given a line with or without tabs in it, unexpand will add tabs when it can save bytes by
       doing so.  Invisible compression with plain ascii!

BUGS
       expand doesn't handle newlines very quickly -- do not feed it an entire document in one
       string.	Instead feed it an array of lines.
