ABSTRACT
Unlike most object oriented programming languages, Python does not use braces such as “{” and “}”. Therefore, mixed tabs and spaces are used for indentation. However, they are causing problems in Python. Several approaches are applied to eliminate the problem that is not only for machine-readable form but also for proof reading for human. Often, characteristics of some programming behaviors are sometimes ambiguous. In such case, it is better for human to review what machines may not handle well, but the majority of python source code editors do not provide visually attracting environment. To provide the solution to both problems, concept of using cellblock in spreadsheet as an indent space for python source code is introduced.
