With the default settings, all tabs are replaced by spaces in my output file.

Any solution for this problem?

What have you tried (that is, show us the command line you typed)? Are you sure you are quoting tab correctly for the shell you are using? Based on your comment about a Windows console window, I'm assuming you are using cmd (rather than a more traditional Unix-y shell like sh) as your shell, you are probably more likely to get a good answer from the GNUwin32 folks rather than here, since most readers of this list don't use cmd. Might I suggest instead trying the cygwin environment, where bash is pre-built for Windows, and which has traditional Unix quoting and is thus something that more readers of this list can help you with.
