Programmers who use spaces 'paid more'

Computer programmers who use spaces as part of their coding earn $15,370 (£12,000) more per year than those who use tabs, a survey of developers has revealed.

I should be a millionaire with the amount of COBOL I've written in the past Grin

Re: Programmers who use spaces 'paid more'

No point using the tab, I find they're an annoyance in web programming because if you edit a file in cpanel for example it usually messes up the format of it when it was edited locally in another program. It's a menace.

Spaces are much easier to work with. First thing I do on any new code i work with is to replace all tabs with 3 spaces.

I need a new signature... i'm bored of the old one!
