    A quick search of the Web gives Artistic Style and Indent - C source beautifier. Next time, you might want to search the Web before you ask.
    C + C++ Compiler: MinGW port of GCC
    Version Control System: Bazaar

    Look up a C++ Reference and learn How To Ask Questions The Smart Way

    Ummm.. Indent has a billion options to control the style. You didn't set it up right. Don't blame the tool for your inability to use it.

    Does it reformat code into K&R style ?
    Until you can build a working general purpose reprogrammable computer out of basic components from radio shack, you are not fit to call yourself a programmer in my presence. This is cwhizard, signing off.

    By default it does something very close to the original K&R. It can be configured to match it exactly. It can be configured to do it any way you want, really.
