About

Tab stops make it possible to horizontally align parts of a line uniformly across several lines. They can be considered a rudimentary way of creating tables. The tabbing environment reads a line of text that may contain the definitions of several tab stops. Unlike the ones following it, this line is not printed. In the following lines, text may be aligned to these tab stops using short commands that, roughly, equal a typewriter's "tab key".
