NAME

cb - Converts C source code into a readable form  

SYNOPSIS

cb [-js] [-llength] [file...]

The cb command reads C programs from standard input or from specified files and writes them to standard output in a form that shows, through indentations and spacing, the structure of the code.
 

OPTIONS

Joins split lines. Splits lines that are longer than length bytes. Formats the source code according to the style of Kernighan and Ritchie in The C Programming Language (Prentice-Hall, Inc., 1978; Englewood Cliffs, New Jersey.)
 

DESCRIPTION

When called without options, the cb command does not split or join lines. Note that punctuation in preprocessor statements can cause indentation errors.
 

EXAMPLES

To create a version of pgm.c called pgm.pretty.c that is easy to read, with no lines longer than 60 bytes, enter: cb -l60 pgm.c > pgm.pretty.c
