Is it possible to invoke C/C++ Formatter from the command line?

This page details how to invoke the Java code formatter but I can find no information on how to do the same for C/C++ code.

I'm looking to do the exact same thing. We're importing a bunch of legacy
code, and the formatting is a disaster. Ident and astyle would let us do
it with a script, but we like the ease and flexibility of CDT's code style
tool for tweaking whitespace and other preferences.

Thanks,

You can try this: github.com/x8o1Y/EclipseCCodeFormatter

This command-line utility is designed to format the C/C++ source code using the formatting tool built into the Eclipse CDT (CCodeFormatter).
