well, first of all Happy New Year.
I had a closed look at astyle and played around with it quite a while. I have attached an alternative option file,
which generates code closer to my favorite style. These are just my preferences, it doesn't mean we need to use it
exactly as it is. In particular the most important points are:
1) style: I prefer broken parenthesis instead of attached ones
2) hard tabs: ok with that. But use the force-tab option
3) no indent-cases blocks, too much indentations.
4) indent preprocessor defines on multiple lines
5) the "--break-blocks" is somehow optional. I have included it, but even without it will do.
6) --pad-oper, --pad-header, --unpad-paren: I prefer something like
if (a == b)
if( a==b )
7) "--delete-empty-lines" ok if "--break-blocks" is used
Everything else is quite minor.
I have also attached the outputs created using the script currently in GIT and mine. Don't bother about the code
itself, it was just made up for testing.
