[cdt-dev] Code Formatting


Internally we have developed a plug-in that integrates the freeware ASTYLE
source code formatter with the standard C/C++ editor from the CDT.  Simply,
it adds a "Format Source" option to the editor's right-click menu.  When
clicked, the source is run through ASTYLE.EXE and the output is placed in
the editor (the editor remains "dirty).  This approach seems to fully
support local history.

A project properties page has also been contributed to control ASTYLE
preferences at the project level.

For now, we can not share this plug-in with the open source community, but
will be working that issue.  Hopefully, we can get that done quick so the
CDT community can evaluate this plug-in.
