Hey Dominic,

Yeah, as long as it's in 1 big commit, and you use something like GNU indent, it should be fine even if it is a fair amount of code churn.

Hi Dominic,
I used the GNU style formatting for the C code. I basically got lazy and used Eclipse to format my code.

And when I did so, I made a separate commit for the formatted code alone so that it was easy to "number" it with svn.

Hey Dominic,

Is there an existing code style for the c code in ndt? I noticed that
some of the files seem to have odd wrapping and indenting, but that
might be a mistake due to merging in the past.

I'd like to clean up the code formatting but I don't know what style
to use.

As long as it's standardized and easy to reproduce, I don't have a
strong opinion on the matter. My only preference would be to use one
that minimizes the amount of change from the existing scheme (to
avoid unnecessary churn).

I understand. My preference would be the Google C++ style ( )
which is pretty much what ndt follows, except for the indentation.

I'm happy to fix up the existing code to the style, but I understand
that might be too much change 'just' for formatting. WDYT?
