librock_replacetabs - Convert tabs in an allocated string to spaces.
#License - #Source code - #Example Use -
char ** ppasz, /* Source and destination */
int tabspacing /* Sets the spacing between repeating tab positions */
Inserts 1 or more spaces for each \t (== ASCII TAB == 0x09) found in ppasz, so that
the count of characters up to the next character is a multiple
Typical use, to insert spaces for tab positions 8 characters apart:
char *asz =0;
or to replace tabs in a file
char *asz = 0;

This software is part of Librock
Rapid reuse, without rework.
- Source code which is Open-source, Free (Libre) and free (no cost)
- Namespace limited. All compile-time macros and names visible at link time are prefixed by "librock_". Integrate into your project and expect no name collisions.
- Stable API means new functions get new names so that there is no risk that updating a source file will break existing applications.
- Highly portable, cross-platform, and multithread compatible. Works with many machines, compilers, and operating systems (gcc/MSVC/Windows/Linux/BSD).
