you are quite right, i didn't  read the source - only sought through the 
documentation - since i would like to change tabsize from within a function
i'm printing a table aligning entries with tabs
the output is messed up if the maximum number of characters ina matrix of 
strings is to big, i.e. >8
it might not be the wrong trail, so perhaps i have to use formatC somehow
regards soren

Yes, it is possible.  Why would you want to do so?

Since you are asking, you presumably haven't explored the source code.
Hint: what do you think TABSIZE might do?
