   tabify: convert space delimited table to tab delmiters

   tabify(input: in, output: out)


   input: file with space delimiting

   output: file with tab delimiting


   The xyplo and other programs in the Delila system use spaces
   to delimit tables.  Any number of spaces are allowed.  However,
   sometimes we would like to read a table into a word processor
   or spread sheet.  Tab delimiters make this easier.

   New as of 2010 Sep 13:  leading blank characters are ignored so
   the first column is really treated as a first column.
