Sorry, this is not exactly a bug, but features I was
hoping would be in Dev-C++.

First, it would be nice if I can specify the default tab
size. Right now you have Dev-C++ put in five spaces for
each tab, and the projects I create on Sun workstations
uses eight spaces.

Second, while you provide a means to specify
parameters for the execution after compiling, I use a
text file to pipe in an input stream. It would be nice if
there was a way to specify a file to get input streams as
well.

As you may have noticed by now, I don't use Dev-
C++/Mingw to make windows applications or libraries,
but to write C++ programs in general.

    It would be really helpful to let us specify the tab size. I
    won't need to push the space bar again and again in order to
    have nice indentations.
    In this connection, it would be also very helpful to have
    automatically-sized indentations, like in emacs (you just
    push the tab button, and emacs analyse the code to
    determinate which level of indentation is required).
