L3 works this way.....

L3 has 3 tabs...

U try to print F1 , F2 , F3...

So in the editor u have given this way (say):

L3 F1,,F2,,F3

1)so initially F1 will be printed with 20 ch....

2) Then since a single tab is given , starting from the left margin, it counts 20

(since first tab length is 20), and prints F2(of length 31)..

3) Next again a single tab is used after F2..So again starting from left margin it

counts 31(since second tab is 31), and prints F3..

But here a overlap of F2 and F3 may occur...

4) Here the third tab is not used .... (only two tabs are used...)

Hope this is clear....

Reply if u have doubts... and reward if helpful....Thanks
