# add horizontal space like TAB [duplicate]

I have two words separate by space in each line I can have a tabular environment with two cell but I'm wondering if is there (in latex) a command like the tabin every word processor.

TIA

• Are you familiar with the tabbing environment? – Mico Jan 5 at 18:42

You may use tabto:

\documentclass{article}
\usepackage{tabto}

\newenvironment{tabs}[1]
{\flushleft\TabPositions{#1}}
{\endflushleft}

\begin{document}

Some text for context Some text for context Some text for context
Some text for context Some text for context Some text for context
\begin{tabs}{2cm,4cm}
abcde\tab abcde\tab xyz \\
abcdef\tab abcdef\tab xyzuv \\
abcd\tab abcde\tab xyz
\end{tabs}
Some text for context Some text for context Some text for context
Some text for context Some text for context Some text for context

\end{document}
