I'd like to start a bit of coding on mplayer and I thought the best way
to get acquainted with the code and how it works is to look through it
and see what I could fix. I immediately saw that there were a number of
different styles that people were developing with.
Some people would use braces with for and if statements, others would
not, some people would put the break in a case statement before the
closing brace, others would not. I thought perhaps it would be a good
idea to get acquainted with the code and help out at the same time.
Also I found some parts of the code with tabbed indentations and others
with space indentations.
Would anyone here object to a clear style guide being formed from the
developers here? I'd be happy to reformat the code along those
guidelines, if it means I can help out, everyone gets clear, well
formatted code along an agreed style.
What do you think? well, I'm 1/2 way through reformatting mplayer.c
with what I think is a good style. It's consistant anyhow. So if
people dont like it then I can always alter it. I'll post it to the
list when I've finished and let people judge for themselves whether they
think this reformatting exercise is a good idea or not.
thanks for listening and I hope a favourable response.
