I have cleaned up entab.c so I am ready to add a new option that removes tabs from only comments. Would you like me to create that and provide a diff at a URL? It would have to be run against all back branches. If it goes well, it could prove to be a way to incrementally improve pgindent. If not, I am afraid we are stuck with our current pgindent output. -- Bruce Momjian <br...@momjian.us> http://momjian.us EnterpriseDB http://enterprisedb.com + Everyone has their own god. + -- Sent via pgsql-hackers mailing list (firstname.lastname@example.org) To make changes to your subscription: http://www.postgresql.org/mailpref/pgsql-hackers
