Configurable source code beautifier for FB

Postby vpdura » Jan 09, 2007 22:48

Does any know of a configurable source code beautifier for Free Basic? I'm looking for something where the user can set the degree of indentation, etc.; something like INDENT for C source code.

You should have put a '?' on the end of that :P I thought you had one to show ;)

Anyways, no one has written one in this community that I know of. It would be a great addition.

fbide has it.


You can change case, generate html and do automatic indent.

Garvan O'Keefe wrote a FreeBASIC code formatting utility many moons ago. The description from



This is a conversion of my BASIC code formatting utility to FreeBASIC source code and FreeBASIC syntax. The main motivation behind the conversion was to use the utility with my Linux setup. This program was original developed from CHANGECASE above with other programmers adding the indenting capability. Conversion to FreeBASIC involved some simple syntax changes, and new sections to tackle indenting module level code.
