Almost every text editor offers some functionallity of this kind. I
favour vim and ther it is CTRL-v for "visual block mode", then mark your

which should be equal to your tab-setting (set shiftwidth=4, set
tabstop=4 in my case).

Anyway if you have to indent very large code chunks, you're probably
writing  "spaghetti code" and should consider packing parts of it in
functions and classes to keep the clarity :)
