Of course, every programmer has his/her own style, and any good
formatter must support them all. ;-) That's why (GNU) indent has a
lot of options.

For a start, have a look at
But of course, not every programmer, not even everyone on this list,
will agree with it.

For a program such as this that's not directly tied to the compiler,
it's quite easy. During development, you can just publish it on your
website or anywhere you like. If you prefer, we can get you a
(ssh/scp/sftp) account to put it in the "Contrib" section on the GPC
home page. When it's finished, we can see how to best integrate it
with GPC.

In any case, if you want it to be an official GPC contribution, the
license of the program must be the GNU GPL (version 3 or later).
