Convert all .php-files and the README.md in current dir to spaces:

indent --spaces *.php README.md

Convert all .php-files in dir to tabs (recursively):

indent --spaces --pattern=*.md -r dir

Convert STDIN, which is the content of myfile.php to spaces and print the result to STDOUT:

cat myfile.php | ./indent --spaces
