I have set the formatter settings to specific formats that I prefer. For example, |
and to never, ever, under any conditions imaginable, to put a tab character in my file. Yet new code I type in does not obey these rules, and I get weird indentations and actual tab characters. I do not want to reformat the entire file to get the formatting rules obeyed; I want the code to go in properly as I type it. What do I have to do to get the indentations I want (Note: above code sample is not to scale; as long as the braces are indented and the code indented beyond the braces I will be happy).
Also, if I wanted to make a variant plugin that really did what EMACS used to do for me, I would be ecstatic. I had my C-mode styles tuned to perfection. What should I be looking at to see how to make my program text go in the way I want it to?
I have a strong belief that it is not the role of the editor to tell me what my code should look line; it is the job of the editor to make my code look how I want it to look. I have been fighting eclipse for a year on this. I accidentally hit whatever key sequence caused a reformatting, and one of my files became unintelligible. So now my files start with
lest this happen again. Note that the problem of not following the formatting style was present before I added these comments.
