Subject:   nvi expandtab - tabs to spaces
Message-ID:  <>

Next in thread | Raw E-Mail | Index | Archive | Help

After all these years, I'm finally wanting to switch tabs to spaces for 
certain documents (yaml comes to mind, python another), but I'm finding 
the FreeBSD nvi lacks expandtab, yet OpenBSD's (as of 6.7) supports this 

What is the canonical way to use space indentation in FreeBSD's nvi?

Is there any appetite (from committers) for a patch/import of the 
feature from OpenBSD?
