The patches have got committed upstream and work well for Postgres. You can take FreeBSD indent(1) as of SVN r303746, apply patches from https://github.com/pstef/freebsd_indent/commits/pass2 (subject to heavy rebasing) and use as pg_bsd_indent for pgindent. There are more fixes I intend to do, of which the most relevant for Postgres are: 1) fixing "function pointer typedef formatting" 2) adding a -tsn option like in GNU indent, for setting how many columns a tab character will produce. I had a preliminary patch implementing that and I have to say that while it removes the need for entab, it also introduces a lot of seemingly pointless changes in formatting which will be arguably improvements or regressions. -- Sent via pgsql-hackers mailing list (email@example.com) To make changes to your subscription: http://www.postgresql.org/mailpref/pgsql-hackers
