The Atari has preset tabs on the video screen. How can I move or delete them? M. Sean Kilpatrick

There are three tab-related control keys: TAB, SET TAB (SHIFT-TAB), and CLEAR TAB (CTRL-TAB). To clear a tab, move the cursor to the tab stop and press CTRL-CLR (on TAB key). To set a tab at the cursor position, press SHIFT-TAB. Setting and clearing tabs from within a program involves PRINTing a series of TAB commands. PRINT"[TAB][TAB CLR][TAB][TAB CLR]" would clear the first two tab stops. To clear all tabs, use a series of [TAB][TAB CLR]'s. Then just PRINT [TAB SET]'s where you want to set, tabs.
