Never really bothered me before, because I only used Python and C, so I
always replaces tabs with spaces.
However, with more C programming lately, I needed to start working with
Makefiles. These require tabs instead of spaces.
So here is how to. In the end of my
.vimrc file I put:
" python python pyhton " convert tabs to spaces before writing python files or C files autocmd! bufwritepre *.py,*.c,*.h set expandtab | retab! 4 " convert spaces to tabs when reading python file or C files autocmd! bufreadpost *.py,*.c,*.h set noexpandtab | retab! 4
Et viola, not so complicated!
