    Command:

    tabs

    
    
    

    SYNOPSIS

           tabs [-v[n]] [-ahuUV] file...
    
    
    

    DESCRIPTION

           The  tabs program clears and sets tab-stops on the terminal.  This uses
           the terminfo clear_all_tabs and set_tab  capabilities.   If  either  is
           absent,  tabs is unable to clear/set tab-stops.  The terminal should be
           configured to use hard tabs, e.g.,
    
                  stty tab0
    
    
    

    OPTIONS

       General Options
           -Tname
                Tell tabs which terminal type to  use.   If  this  option  is  not
                given,  tabs  will use the $TERM environment variable.  If that is
                not set, it will use the ansi+tabs entry.
    
           -d   The debugging option shows a ruler  line,  followed  by  two  data
                lines.   The  first  data line shows the expected tab-stops marked
                with asterisks.  The second data line shows the actual  tab-stops,
                marked with asterisks.
    
           -n   This  option tells tabs to check the options and run any debugging
                option, but not to modify the terminal settings.
    
           The tabs program processes a single list of tab stops.  The last option
           to  be  processed  which  defines a list is the one that determines the
           list to be processed.
    
       Implicit Lists
           Use a single number as an option, e.g., "-5" to set tabs at  the  given
           interval  (in  this case 1, 6, 11, 16, 21, etc.).  Tabs are repeated up
           to the right margin of the screen.
    
       Explicit Lists
           An explicit list can be defined after the options (this does not use  a
           "-").   The values in the list must be in increasing numeric order, and
           greater than zero.  They are separated by a comma or a blank, for exam-
           ple,
    
                  tabs 1,6,11,16,21
                  tabs 1 6 11 16 21
           Use  a  '+'  to treat a number as an increment relative to the previous
           value, e.g.,
    
                  tabs 1,+5,+5,+5,+5
           which is equivalent to the 1,6,11,16,21 example.
    
       Predefined Tab-Stops
           X/Open defines several predefined lists of tab stops.
    
           -s   SNOBOL
    
           -u   UNIVAC 1100 Assembler
    
    
    

    PORTABILITY

           X/Open describes a +m option, to set a terminal's left-margin.  None of
           the entries in the terminal database provide this capability.
    
           The  -d  (debug)  and -n (no-op) options are extensions not provided by
           other implementations.
    
           Documentation for other implementations states that there is a limit on
           the  number of tab stops.  While some terminals may not accept an arbi-
           trary number of tab stops, this implementation will attempt to set  tab
           stops  up  to the right margin of the screen, if the given list happens
           to be that long.
