"use tabs" to save file space


I'm quite certain that isn't the reasoning. I think some TABophiles use TABs to save keystrokes.

I, of course, use two SPACEs per TAB and otherwise a whole Elephant | [mastadon] ing load of whitespace, vertical space in particular. I am not interested in "saving space" or "saving keystrokes" I need space so I can read the stuff.

The simple IDE I developed for myself defaults to TABs because there is no reasonable number of SPACEs to use as a default instead. But what can save file space is that it right-trims SPACEs from lines when it saves a file -- that eliminates a lot more characters from saved files than using TABs.
