           Summary: Style rules not supported by autoformatters
           Product: WebKit
           Version: 420+ (nightly)
          Platform: PC
        OS/Version: Mac OS X 10.4
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: Tools
        AssignedTo: webkit-unassigned at opendarwin.org

The current style rules for WebKit

Are not directly supported by available auto-code formatters astyle,indent etc.

First it would be nice to develop either a modified style guidelines that would
allow the use of at least one command line code formatter. 

I've developed a set of rules for astyle that seem close.

astyle \
--mode=c \
--convert-tabs \
--indent=spaces=4 \
--brackets=linux \
--indent-switches \
--max-instatement-indent=40 \
--min-conditional-indent=4 \
--one-line=keep-statements \
--one-line=keep-blocks \
--pad=oper \

But they do not work completely
namespace foo {
namespace foo

And if() -> if () is not supported.
Other artifacts are possbile.

The following is needed
1.) Determine the best formatter
2.) Modify formatter if needed to fit the current rules.
3.) Change the rules to follow the formatter where its difficult or impossible
to follow the current formatting rules.

Note desired formatting that is not handled by auto formatting as strong

Finally schedule a full reformat of the code base if desired.
