Hi

My new employer has a coding style policy-- no tabs in lines. I believe
Eclipse's
auto-formatting feature automatically puts tabs in lines. is there any way
to
configure Eclipse to use four spaces instad of a tab character?

Remove the ns_ from if replying by e-mail (but keep posts in the

Yes - you do this via formatter preferences.

But only in Java. See a recent thread about this, there is a bug to
move this functionality to text editors.
