Rule:  6.4.bChecked automatically with code checker

Synopsis:The tab character (0x09 ASCII) shall not be used.
Language:C
Severity Level:8
Category:Lexical Elements


Description:

Justification

Some tooling will fail (!) if the tab character is used (for instance automatic merging could go wrong).

Note

Also different "tab to a number of space (0x20 ASCII) character translations" in different editors can lead to a different layout per editor. Manual merging with a garbled layout will lead to merge errors, review errors, etc.
