thanks for your summary. I tried a couple for C code formatters for
RTEMS in the last couple of years and none delivered sufficiently good
results. My hope was that we could use clang-format with some additions
for RTEMS. However, it seems the hurdle to add new style options to
clang-format is quite high:
"The goal of the clang-format project is more on the side of supporting
a limited set of styles really well as opposed to supporting every
single style used by a codebase somewhere in the wild. Of course, we do
want to support all major projects and thus have established the
following bar for adding style options. Each new style option must ..
* be used in a project of significant size (have dozens of
* have a publicly accessible style guide
* have a person willing to contribute and maintain patches"
I am not sure if RTEMS would count as a project of "significant size".
