cout and '\t'

i'm printing out a bunch of values of differing length to the screen but want it to look nice.
i can use -- cout << '\t' << values << endl; BUT the tab distance is too long.

is there a way to change that distance?
or is there another way to achieve my goal?

thanks in advance :)

ps, using c++
See decision here. You can use spaces instead of tabs.
