Assume I have
language-make installed, which has the setting for a
Makefile to be hard tabs (as it should be). When the global setting
tabType is set to
soft), what is the priority? Will it:
- try to determine the tab type using the auto logic, even though the file type says “hard”?
- use “hard” because the file type says “hard”?
More importantly, how do I debug on a case by case basis what decision it is making?
I am using tab type = “auto”, soft tabs = “off”, and
Makefile still gives soft tabs. I am more than happy to debug, but I do not know its priority decision process and how to explore what logic it is using.
