Contributors are kindly asked to follow this style or run the above commandline on their new code before sending a patch or committing to svn. The style of existing code lines should not be changed, not even the "surrounding" lines to a largish patch, especially not in the same patch/commit with actual code changes.
We do not put space between the pointer-asterisk and name; indent(1) unfortunately does this in function declaration:
We have a patch against indent 2.2.11 to fix this.
We do not use tabs for aligning code in columns; we use tabs exclusively to indicate levels logical alignment. indent(1) attempts to align the right-side comments using tabs. We have a patch against indent 2.2.11 to change this when column is set to 0.
