PDIR issue

I want to use horizontal tab to separate reporting fields in PDIR. I attempted to use the string "%=t" by itself, but it does not work in all instances. The alias below (as displayed by the WHICH command) works, but it requires space character to separate the representation of the tab both before and after the field reporting by function call (@VERINFO[*]), and also between the tab and the "d" of the file date field.

z is an alias : pdir/nj/og/s/a:-d/(fn"%=t" @verinfo[*] "%=t" dy-m-d th:m:s"%=t"zc"%=t"r"%=t"fp)

I can't reproduce any problem with a tab before @VERINFO and before the "d"
of the file date field.

The required space after the @VERINFO[] is WAD (and necessary, as otherwise
you wouldn't be able to use quotes in the variable functions).
