I’m currently working on a major new version of the datatool package. This may take a while. Please be patient. (Experimental version available for testing.)

\DTLsettabseparator changes the catcode of <tab> to 12. This may cause problems when tabs appear in the source (e.g., makeindex authomatically generates such tab-laden source material). To avoid the user having to explicitly reset the catcode to 10 (an require knowledge of catcodes), it may be useful to have a
\DTLunsettabseparator command that does that for him.
I decided to call the new command
\DTLmaketabspace rather than
DTLunsettabseparator. It's more in line with
\makeatletter. Also I was concerned that users might think that
\DTLunsettabseparator will reset the separator to some previous value rather than simply changing the category code. Anyway, it's added to version 2.23.
