Here are some suggestions. Since you haven't mentioned what script you are using, I have given these commands in bash script.

1. To replace tabs in code with a single space
tr '\t' ' '

2. To replace leading tabs with 4 spaces
tr '^\t' ' '

This is just a mod of your previous question:

Replace this sed command in the for loop of the other answer. Once again, there is a real TAB character between []:

sed -e 's/[ ]/ /' -e 's/[ ]/ /g' -e 's/[ ]*$//' $file > ./tmp.file
