Ah...got more reading. `expand` is smarter than I have thought ( I
misunderstood it as only fixed space characters can be provided to replace
tabs), so to keep the source file looks the same as it used to be. This should
be enough to:

$ cat /tmp/tabfile | while read fn ; do expand $fn > /tmp/no_initabfile; mv /tmp/no_initabfile $fn; done

Then removing trailing spaces.

Is that the correct way?

Best regards,

Presumably when somebody uses tab characters in a source file, they intend them to tab to the next multiple of four columns regardless where on the line they are? That is how the editor shows the source files to the person editing it. Or am I missing something?
