Summary: check_dig output contains embedded TABs

Initial Comment:
This issue was discovered under the following conditions:
Nagios CVS 12/29/2004
Plugins CVS 12/29/2004
PerfParse tarball 1/15/2005

The dig program uses tabs to align its output. This
output is captured by the check_dig plugin and is
passed unmodified to Nagios. This presents a problem to
parsers that attempt to decompose performance data.
Performance data template normally specifies that
state, output, perfdata, etc. are tab-delimited when
written by Nagios. PerfParse, and any other performance
data processor that depends on tab-separated elements,
is confused and thus disregards the data.
