Introduction to Indent
The indent program can be used to make code easier to read. It
can also convert from one style of writing C to another. indent
understands a substantial amount about the syntax of C, but it also
attempts to cope with incomplete and misformed syntax.
indent can be found on in the subdirectory
/gnu/indent/ on your favorite GNU
mirror. For other ways to obtain Indent, please read
How to get GNU
