C beautifier

P: 73
Searched the forum and didn't find any topics on this.

Does anyone know where I can find a user friendly C beautifier. We are using Indent right now, but it doesnt have a friendly interface.

If you have used a beautifier that you are happy with, please let me know.

Tools such as this can be very helpful when studying somebody else's poorly formatted code. However, there is always some chance that the beautifier will alter the source code. I recommend you use the output of the beautifier as throw-away annotation; as opposed to replacing the ugly code with the beautified code.

Ya, I know what you mean. We use the beuatifier as the basis of our original written code. It is just a nice way to keep everybody's code consistent. We also use file comparison tool (like Beyond Compare) to see the changes the beuatifier made, to make sure it was only formatting and nothing else.
