I prefer to set
tabs 4 however this may have some side effects, such as for example
ls out put may look not properly aligned. How might I configure the terminal / cat to use four spaces for tabs for cat only?
Should I just alias / wrap
cat to something that sets
tabs 4, runs
/bin/cat, then sets it back? My thinking is that this route is less preferable since in fact I would like this behaviour for
diff, and other utilities.
