=head1 NAME

Perl::Critic::Policy::CodeLayout::ProhibitSpaceIndentation - Use tabs instead of spaces for indentation.


For projects which have a policy of using tabs for indentation, you want to
ensure there are no spaces used for that purpose. This Policy catches all
such occurrences so that you can be sure when the tab sizes are reconfigured,
spaces won't make indented code look wrong.

This policy can be used together with
by setting C<allow_leading_tabs> option of the latter to C<1>.


This Policy is not configurable except for the standard options.

=head1 NOTES

If there are blank lines before a violating line, the first blank line will be
reported as the violation location, because all the whitespace forms a single
token which Perl::Critic gives to the policy.
