If you got some weirdly indented source code, or if you want to change
indent of your own script, this can make it.
Can it reformat source?
No, it just converts any existing indent into any other.
And that's all?
BTW, I had to make something more powerful as a "side project"
to build this: The Regplax
(unfinished; I have a big plans wit it).
What do these capital letters in buttons mean?
Accesskeys. Press alt (+ shift in FF2+) + that letter and you'll see.
I wanted something short, unique and (erm) intuitive.
I know it sound terribly, but it was nearly the only usable name
I thought out.
How does it work?
Regular expression and replacement. A bit simplyfied:
indent»continuously replaced by
$1«desired indent». See source or read it
What's your indentation habit?
One space. No, it is not a joke :) But hey, with this tool it does not
matter which indent is used; you can change it with 'no risk'.
And that's why you made it?
Yes, exactly! I planned for a long time to write such tool, but the real
impulse was this article.
And why not to simply do global replacement in my text editor?
Yes, in most cases it works well, but not always. Global replacement is
dangerous for indentations characters/sequences which aren't actually
indenting (eg. tabs in strings or simple spaces anywhere). To do it safe
it is necessary to replace only characters placed at beginning of lines.
To do it in the text editor, you would have to make several repeated
quite complicated replacements (which this tool does by single click).
Can I contribute?
I've found a bug!
I'd like to improve...
Yey, thanks, it helped me so much!
