change tab size

I am writing a java console app that is going to format a table from
another file.  I was separating the columns with a tab.  Some of the
entries are longer than 8 char's.  Can I shange the default tab size in
the OS to make the table work?  I posted the question in
comp.lang.java.help and was told that I couldn't do that with java.

Thanks!
