Good point - and the settings might not all be available in earlier versions of WDSC/RDi/RDP.

In RDP I get to the settings by going to the Window menu, then Preferences. I type "CL" where it says to type, then I see what I want under "Remote Systems" and parsers therein.

1. Automatic syntax checking (Y/N) - dft = N
2. Automatic uppercasing (Y/N) - dft = N
3. Automatic indenting (Y/N - 1-20 blanks) - dft = Y, 3 blanks
4. Automatic formatting (Y/N) - dft = Y
a. Label position - dft = 2
b. Command position - dft = 14
c. Continued line indent - dft = 13
d. Label above command (Y/N) - dft = N
e. One parameter per line (Y/N) - dft = N

The defaults look a lot like SEU, except for the indentation. I use uppercasing, indenting (2 blanks), formatting (2, 3, & 13, label above and one parameter per line)

Here's a DCL under default settings -

LEN(10) +

There are also user-defined tab settings you can use - maybe those could help with the pretty-column setups some like, I don't know.

there how you change the CL parser to format 'prettier'.
