Dear all:
I'm a no tab person. I would like my whitespace-cleanup command to
also perform an untabify. How can this be done? I haven't found any
option that connects untabify and whitespace-cleanup. I'm using:
GNU Emacs (i486-pc-linux-gnu, GTK+ Version 2.12.9)
I have never used whitespace-cleanup (I use delete-trailing-whitespace),
  but from the doc of this function it looks like it also untabifies if
`indent-tabs-mode' is nil. Does not that work?

Hi, Lennart:

Yes, that's what I thought, but was not the case, as if I applied
whitespace-cleanup and then untabify, the file was modified (that is,
it still converted *some* tabs to spaces), so I assumed it didn't work
this way. I had indent-tabs-mode set to nil also.


Hi diego

In that case it looks like a bug to me. Could you please send a bug report

  M-x report-emacs-bug

You need to attach an example and exact instructions (starting from "emacs -Q").
