NetBSD cromarty 1.4X NetBSD 1.4X (CROMARTY) #9: Wed May  3 23:49:51 BST 2000

POSIX.2 specifies that "unexpand" should be able to take a "-t <tablist>"
option to specify where it assumes tab stops are.  NetBSD's one doesn't
accept this.

cromarty:~$ unexpand -t 8
unexpand: illegal option -- t
usage: unexpand [-a] [file ...]
