I switch between Gedit, Notepad++, and vim fairly often depending on what I'm doing and whose computer I'm on. Sometimes I end up with tab characters where I really wanted four spaces, mainly when I'm using vim and I haven't figured out how to get vim to not do this. Gedit and Notepad++ have settings to use spaces instead of tabs, so there's no issue there.

Either I don't notice the tab characters until after I've put lots of them in the file I'm editing, or I'm editing a file from someone else whose editor uses tab characters for indentation. I know its not a big deal to some people, but tab indentation mixed with space indentation is a huge pet peeve of mine.

Thus, a perl script was born:
