Is anyone using GNU Indent to format code. I'm testing it with PHP code
that contains SQL statements.
(I use -bli0 -cbi0 -ts0 to format) and a couple of things came up.
1. I need to rejoin the <?php and ?> characters together, no big deal..
I'll accept that. Same for elseif.
2. It screws up my variable definitions, I like to have:
$var1 = "val";
$varTwo = "val2";
$v = "val444";
But Indent gets rid of all those spaces, has anyone used Indent to "add"
those spaces in or just leave them in?
3. It screws up my SQL statements.
I might do
$query = "SELECT *
And Indent come along and does the following:
$query = "SELECT * FROM customers WHERE username = 'blah' ";
It's worse if the query is defined using sprintf()!
Has anyone managed to tell Indent not to format strings?
