RFE: Add preset Code Formatter conventions for popular Open Source C/C++ styles
Last modified: 2008-07-07 23:45:48 EDT
Description of problem:
Go to: Window->Preferences->C/C++->Code Formatter
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Only visible option is "(NONE)"
Would be nice to have these things:
(i) editing system (similar to the JDT) with previews showing different
formattings of a sample of a code
(ii) add presets to cover the formatting conventions of the following major
- Linux Kernel
(iii) ability to pick up on Emacs formatting conventions of this kind:
/* -*- Mode: C; indent-tabs-mode: t; c-basic-offset: 8; tab-width: 8 -*- */
and to use them automatically
(iv) also to pick up on Vi formatting hint lines like the following:
# vim: sw=4 ts=4 sts=4 noet ai
This is something that would be nice to do, Jeff. It should probably be done within the context of upstream but could be carried as a patch in our packages in the interim.
Adding FutureFeature keyword to RFE's.
