Pretty Printer / Indenter
« on: April 20, 2013, 06:33:12 AM »
Is there a pretty printer / re-indenter / formatter tool for OB anywhere? Or do I have to write it?

There's a lot of semi-readable code in here.

Kind regards,
Bugmagnet

you probably mean - code which you don't understand properly ...
or something like that ?

Indentation makes it easier for me to understand the intent of the code. It's a weakness I have.

I have since then found the indenter.o2bas file in OxygenBasic\tools\CodeMan

Apologies,

Hi Bruce,

That code, if I remember rightly, needs a thorough rework. Indented code blocks is very good but often gets out of control on long blocks. Haven't found the ideal solution yet,
