Come On People!

it continues to amaze me that there are still people out there who are smart enough to write some pretty cool code, but dumb enough to mix tabs and spaces in their source files. i mean this isn't rocket science people, if you want someone else to be able to read the code (especially if you're using something other than the vaguely standard 1 tab == 8 spaces setting), JUST PICK ONE OR THE OTHER! if you don't, as soon as someone who doesn't have their editor configured EXACTLY the same as yours opens it up, the first thing they'll say is "damn, this looks like crap, didn't anyone teach this guy how to indent?"

that is all.

  2. i agree completely. on all the projects i've had the vague opportunity to "run" i've standardized on no tabs. i find it easier that way.
