Subject: [WDSCI-L] RDi: 3rd party source code formatters

I'm looking for a free 3rd party source code/SQL formatter I can plug into RDi. The built-in hasn't worked well or consistently for years and I'm on I guess cleaning this up isn't a high priority for the RDi team.

The SQL formatting drives me bonkers. I frequently get "Could not indent source beyond end column limit 80" messages. In addition, blank lines are often deleted and the casing of structured opcodes usually goes to ALL UPPER if the preceding SQL statement is malformed. The SQL formatter in iACS is pretty good but then there's no RPG support; why not port that code?

I can take a few days and write one myself but, like everybody else, I have other things to do. But it would be fun, so I better stop talking about doing it before it becomes too enticing.
