Re: Command-line indentation tool for Java



I've tried indent on Java code. It doesn't look good and gives a lot of 
irrelevant error messages. A text editor can do indentation, but suppose 
the indentation of a whole block and its contained blocks changes during 
the course of development. That looks like manual work to me.

What I am looking for is something like

jindent javafile

that applies standard Java indentation rules. The amount of indentation 
between levelss should be variable to accomodate different preferences. 
I prefer an indentation of two spaces, so things don't run off my 
braille display too much.

Google did bring up a lot of choices, but none seemed to be what I want. 
I also want it to be written in Java and Open Source. And of course a 
command-line application.

Thanks,
John
