View Full Version : How to automatically indent a *.pas file ?
April 23rd, 2005, 08:16 PM
Hi ! I just finished to write a *.pas file.
But I see that it is not well indented...
I used gvim to write it.
My program is quite long...
Is it possible to automatically indent my program with gvim?
Or is there a program to do so?
Thanks to help me.
Sorry for my English

I would have thought there would be a specific tool for this, but if you can't find one, you can use this script. It requires Emacs to be installed.
This script was originally for indenting Ada, but I have modified it for you so it will do Pascal. Hope it helps.
;;; batch-pas-indent.el -- non-interactive indentation of Pascal code

;;; Typical use: define a script called "pascal-indent" containing:
;;; #! /bin/sh
;;; emacs -batch -l batch-pas-indent.el -f batch-pascal-indent "$"
;;; then call "pascal-indent *.pas" to indent your files.
;;; BUG: If a named file does not exist, this program will create it.

(defun batch-pascal-indent ()
"Load each file named on the command line, and indent them as Pascal sources.
Use this from the command line, with `-batch';
it won't work in an interactive Emacs.
For example, invoke \"emacs -batch -l batch-pas-indent.el -f batch-pascal-indent *.pas\""
(if (not noninteractive)
(error "`batch-pascal-indent' is to be used only with -batch"))
(let ((source (car command-line-args-left)))
(indent-region (point-min) (point-max) nil)
(setq command-line-args-left (cdr command-line-args-left)))
