HELP VEDINDENTSTEP                          Aaron Sloman, April 1982

This variable controls the amount by which the cursor moves right when
you press the 'TAB' key. It also controls the translation of leading
spaces to tab characters when you write a file (if *VEDNOTABS is FALSE).

VEDINDENTSTEP is also used by the indentation program, which 'tidies'

The default value of VEDINDENTSTEP is 4 for all new files. You can
change it to 8 for example (for a particluar file) with the command:

    <ENTER> indent 8
