How Reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. use 'emacs foo.c' to edit a .c file. 
2. within a function, hit tab to indent.

Actual Results:
it indents 8 spaces.

Expected Results:
In C mode, indent 2 spaces, in each set of braces.
On Redhat 7.2 and prior, (emacs 20.7.1), it does this.

The amounts of space and other behaviour are completely customizable - look at
the info pages: hit "m CC Mode<ENTER>" for more information.
Comment 2 phil 2002-06-28 16:56:35 EDT
I (and the user here that reported the problem) tried
 alt-m m CC Mode<ENTER>
and the response was
  No manual entry for CC Mode

I copied the emacs binary and /usr/share/emacs/20.7 directory from Redhat 7.1
to his machine, now running 7.3.  He's happy using that.

Infopages are accessed through C-h i
Comment 4 phil 2002-06-28 17:37:46 EDT
'Control-h i' just moves me up one line in the file,
and inserts the character i.

Comment 5 Trond Eivind Glomsrxd 2002-06-28 17:54:03 EDT
Just run info - I'll stop here, this is a bug report facility, not a support
channel. The above is not a bug, but a configuration issue.
