Copy      Help
function# tabWidth

;Replaces tabs to spaces.
;Returns the number of found tabs.


;tabWidth - the number of characters that fit in a tab (eg 8 in notepad, 4 in qm).

;EXAMPLE
;str s.getsel ;;copy selected text from eg notepad
;s.TabsToSpaces(8)
;s.setsel



if(tabWidth<1) end ES_BADARG

str ss.flags=1; ss.all(this.len)
int i j
for i 0 this.len
,sel this[i]
,,case 9 ss.set(32 ss.len tabWidth-j); j=0
,,case [13,10] ss.geta(this i 1); j=0
,,case else ss.geta(this i 1); j+1; if(j=tabWidth) j=0
this=ss
