RE: CL Formatter



fixed

Never did anything with that utility.

About keywords or not, the 5.1.2 formatter leaves what you have but will add keywords if you prompt the statement, just as SEU does. There is not a way, if I read thing correctly, to line up parameters vertically - main place for this is in DCL's, where a table-like format is nice. Either the parameters wrap a la SEU (but you can control where the break is) or they are on separate lines.

So I believe it will maintain your case (upper, lower) and can indent flow control structures.

Good to read through that thread.  Say, Vern, did you ever enhance that
utility like you intended?

Just so it's customizable.  I avoid keywords like the plague for common
commands:

Pgm
      Dclf  ARR100FM
      Dcl   &ThisMonth@ *Char (     2    )
      Dcl   &ThisMonth  *Dec  (     2  0 )
      Dcl   &ThisYear@  *Char (     2    )
      Dcl   &ThisYear   *Dec  (     4  0 )
      Dcl   &p_Company  *Char (     2    )
      Dcl   &p_Month    *Char (     2    )
      Dcl   &p_Year     *Char (     4    )

      RtvSysVal  qMonth       &ThisMonth@
      RtvSysVal  qYear        &ThisYear@
      ChgVar     &ThisMonth   &ThisMonth@
      ChgVar     &ThisYear    &ThisYear@
      ChgVar     &ThisYear  ( &ThisYear + 2000 )
      ChgVar     &s_Year    ( &ThisYear )
      ChgVar     &s_Month   ( &ThisMonth - 1 )
      If         ( &s_Month *eq 00 )  Then( Do )
        ChgVar     &s_Year   ( &s_Year - 1 )
        ChgVar     &s_Month  ( 12 )
      Enddo
      ChgVar     &s_Company  01
Loop:
      SndRcvF    RcdFmt( ARR100A )
      If         ( &in24 )  Then( Return )

You can tell I don't care much for uppercase.
