Hello All,

I was looking for a method to insert <TAB> (ASCII Code 0x09) in a
output stream generated by a macro. I tried using 




where \t@gfile has been opened by \newwrite and \openout. I see only
a space where the TAB is intended. Then I tried ^^J, and found that
LF is inserted. There is a line in latex.ltx which changes the
catcode of ^^I to 10 (blank). I changed it to 11, but that doesn't do
what I meant. Is there any other way of inserting a TAB?
