7 Hmm, theres an interesting issue here though. How many coders here
8 learned to code during the hardcore pascal era? the "you use two spaces
9 indentation" was slowly and forcibly poured down my throat and into my
10 spine, I still do it everyime I'm in a decent pascal / delphi editor.
11 (so far no IDE has been equal to borland tp-7 or above, definitely not
12 their sk. c/c++ IDE's, but that's a different flame ;)
14 Now, when I started c/c++ coding (and later, java) it was <tab> all the
15 way... but, pascal? no... its doublespace you darn morons! it has to be!
16 force! foooorce! and make a sed-script if it isn't :)
19 now, Does anyone know how to make gpm transfer tabs/spaces ok instead of
20 converting all my tabs to spaces? or failing gpm working, getting vim to
21 notice gpm broken paste and convert and align nicely?
