    Utility to replace the "square" with proper tabs

    I just downloaded phpBB and when I view the .php files in Notepad the tabs are replaced with a "square". Is there a free utility/program that will take out the "squares" and tab the file properly so I can read it easier.

    I'm on a PC.

    Open it in WordPad instead.

    Alternatively, you could try any number of free text editors designed for code editing, such as Crimson Editor. I personally preferred UltraEdit when I was still working in a Windows environment, but that wasn't free.

    I've seen cases where opening it up in wordpad and then saving and opening in notepad works. I'm a big notepad fan.
