tab2space [options] [infile [outfile]] ...


Utility to expand tabs and ensure consistent line endings options.

When the infile is not specified or is set to - (dash) the input file is read from standard input.

This man page is rewritten from -help output.

Note this utility doesn't map spaces to tabs!
