( #3333=superdoc: print w/ replies, xml ) Need Help??

I code to a rather strict interpretation of K&R style, but I use two-column indents instead of eight- columns, mostly to conserve screen real estate. (And of course I cuddle my elses!)

    Update: Cuddled elses are:
    if(foo) { ... } else { ... }
    whereas perlstyle, IIRC, recommends:
    if(foo) { ... } else { ... }

Another thing: I try to keep my line lengths below 72 columns. This keeps it easy to read even when you're editing it on the server console (don't ask), with vi in line-numbering mode. (And if a line's longer than 72 columns, it's probably malformed anyway.)

I used to be vehemently anti-1TBS, citing all the usual arguments about braces getting lost and code being cluttered and hard to read. Then I took a course from a prof who used 1TBS all the time, and it just clicked. (Sort of like the way I started out using Emacs, and switched to vi.)
