In other words how obtain e.g. in Geany(I use it in a Linux box but exist for all known platforms; astyle as well ) an analogous effect  as in Eclipse's  Ctrl+Shift+F (invoke the Auto Formatter)

I was advised from a colleague about Artistic Style  a nice small Auto-formatter for the C, C++, C++/CLI, Objective‑C, C# and Java programming languages and I can confirm that do his work as it should  

The steps to go operational are pretty straightforward:
  • Download the newest version, currently is 3.1
  • Install Artistic Style -> follow the install doc (/astyle/doc/install.html) in the download (make then make install)
  • Add a custom command to Geany:  bash -c "astyle --indent-classes -Y"
  • To customize this thake a glance at the Artistic Style documentation
  • Select an text area and press Ctrl+1 to run the first Geany custom command

    Always look on the bright side of life. At least this ad is really tiny:
