It is a bad idea to use tabs in E-Mail.  You cannot know how they will be
displayed in someone else's mail-reader.  You cannot know which font will be
used (what is its size, is it mono-spaced or proportional, etc.), and you
cannot know how that reader will show tabs.  So, some E-Mail programs will
convert tabs into a group of spaces when you are creating your mail.
Karri's makefiles do have tabs where they are supposed to be -- they just
don't show them in this mailing-list.

To unsubscribe from the list send mail to with
the string "unsubscribe cc65" in the body(!) of the mail.
