This is correct, but does not much illuminate Tiago's question. 

-tabi- is just a wrapper for -tabulate- and all the work that concerns Tiago is done off-stage by -tabulate-, which is part of the executable. Thus there is no code that users can look at. Precisely what -tabulate- does is thus a matter for the manual entry. 

. viewsource tabi.ado 

is a more direct way to see this.

If your screen is cluttered too heavily by -trace-, try

******
cap profiler clear
profiler on
tabi 30 13 \ 18 7 \ 38 22, all exact
profiler off
profiler report
******

which shows that no other -program- apart from -tabi- is involved.
