    Code:
    {
    	{
    		{
    			{
    			}
    		}
    	}
    }
    I am against the teaching of evolution in schools. I am also against widespread
    literacy and the refrigeration of food.

    umm... tabbing within each level within loops is a good start.

    First of all, if you are part of a professional team of programmers or are taking a programming class, go by whatever standard your boss/teacher sets. If you just need to indent for your own sake, and no one else will see your code, do whatever you have to do. There is disagreement in the programming community over some indenting. For example,
    Code:
    // some people do this
    function(int x)
    {
    	// code goes here
    }
    // others do this
    function(int x){
    	// code goes here
    }
    No one can really tell you which way is better. I've seen some good arguments to support both sides. If you have the freedom, do what feels right to you.

    But, in general, indent everything in a loop, a function(including main), and a conditional statement(like if or switch).
