Two new text positioning commands are defined: \tabto and \tab.
\tabto{<length>} and \tabto*{<length>}
Tab to a specified position relative to the left margin in a paragraph
They differ when the text on the line already goes past the desired
position: \tabto gives a line break whereas \tabto* backspaces.

Tab to the next tab-stop chosen from a list of tab positions, in
the traditional style of typewriters. The tab-stop positions are 
declared using either \TabPositions{<length>, <length>,...<length>}
or \NumTabs{<number>}.

tabto-ltx – “Tab” to a measured position in the line

\tabto{<length>} moves the typesetting position to <length> from the left margin of the paragraph. If the typesetting position is already further along, \tabto starts a new line; the command \tabto* will move position backwards if necessary, so that previous text may be overwritten.

The command \TabPositions may be used to define a set of tabbing positions, after which the command \tab advances typesetting position to the next defined ‘tab stop’.
