where n is the number of character spaces representing a tab in your source program.

Notes

This option only affects error messages that specify the column number at which an error occurred. For example, the compiler will consider tabs as having a width of one character if you specify -qtabsize=1. In this case, you can consider one character position (where each character and each tab equals one position, regardless of tab length) as being equivalent to one character column.
