    <h3 id="_General_Information">General Information</h3>

    <h4>Line Endings</h4>

    <p>
        Line endings in the formatted file will be the same as the input file. If there are mixed line endings the most
        frequent occurrence will be used. There is also an option to specify or change the line endings.</p>

    <h4>File Type</h4>

    <p>
        Artistic Style will determine the file type from the file extension. The extension ".java" indicates a Java file,
        and ".cs" indicates a C# file. Everything else is a C type file (C, C++, C++/CLI, or Objective-C). If you are
        using a non-standard file extension for Java or C#, use one of the --mode= options.</p>

    <h4>Wildcards and Recursion</h4>

    <p>
        Artistic Style can process directories recursively. Wildcards (such as "*.cpp" or "*.c??") are processed internally.
        If a shell is used, it should pass the wildcards to Artistic Style instead of resolving them first. For Linux
        use double quotes around paths whose file name contains wildcards. For Windows use double quotes around paths
        whose file name contains spaces. The <a href="#_recursive">recursive</a> option in the
        <a href="#_Other_Options">Other Options</a> section contains information on recursive processing.</p>

    <h4>File Names</h4>

    <p>
        When a file is formatted, the newly indented file retains the original file name. A copy of the original file
        is created with an <strong>.orig</strong> appended to the original file name. (This can be set to
        a different string by the option --suffix=, or suppressed altogether by the options -n
        or --suffix=none). Thus, after indenting <em>SourceFile.cpp</em> the indented file will
        be named <em>SourceFile.cpp</em>, while the original pre-indented file will be renamed to
        <em>SourceFile.cpp.orig</em>.</p>

    <h4>Internationalization</h4>

    <p>
        Artistic Style has been internationalized to process files and directories in any language.</p>
    <p>
        It has also been translated into several languages. The translation to use is determined by the User Locale
        for Windows and the LANG environment variable for other systems. The translation will be done automatically from
        these settings. If no translation is available it will default to English. There is an "ascii" option to use English
        instead of the system language.</p>
    <p>
        The source code for the translations is at the end of ASLocalizer.cpp in the form of an English&#8209;Translation
        pair. If you make corrections to a translation, send the source as a bug report and it will be included in the
        next release.</p>
    <p>
        To add a new language, add a new translation class to ASLocalizer.h. Add the English&#8209;Translation pair to
        the constructor in ASLocalizer.cpp. Update the WinLangCode array and add the language code to the function setTranslationClass().
        The ASLocalizer.cpp program contains comments that give web pages for obtaining the LCIDs and language codes.
        Send the source code as a bug report and it will be included in the next release.</p>

    <h4>Other Considerations</h4>

    <p>
        The names of special characters used in programming vary by region. The terminology used by Artistic Style,
        followed by other common names, is<strong>:</strong></p>
    <blockquote>
        braces or curly braces { } &#8209; also called brackets, or curly brackets.<br />
        parens or round brackets ( ) &#8209; also called parentheses, brackets, circle brackets, or soft brackets.<br />
        square brackets [ ] &#8209; also called block parens, brackets, closed brackets, or hard brackets.<br />
        angle brackets < > &#8209; also called brackets, pointy brackets, triangular brackets, diamond brackets, tuples,
        or chevrons.
    </blockquote>
    <p>
        Visual Studio, and possibly other development environments, has extensions that will align assignment operators
        across multiple lines. There is an extension named "Code alignment" that will align the code on other items as
        well. Formatting with these options and extensions can be used with Artistic Style. The space padding will be
        maintained and the alignment will be preserved. </p>
    <p>
        Artistic Style can format standard class library statements such as Open GL, wxWidgets, Qt, and MFC.</p>
    <p>
        Embedded assembler language is formatted correctly. This includes extended assembly and Microsoft specific assembler
        lines and blocks.</p>
    <p>
        Artistic Style can format embedded SQL statements. The SQL formatting will be maintained as long as the standard
        hanging indent format is used. If the "exec sql" statement is indented more than the following statements, the
        SQL will be aligned in a single column.</p>
    <p>
        Unicode files encoded as UTF&#8209;16, both big and little endian, will be formatted. The files must begin with
        a byte order mark (BOM) to be recognized. Files encoded as UTF&#8209;32 will be rejected. Some compilers do not
        support these encodings. These files can be converted to UTF&#8209;8 encoding with the program "iconv". There
        are Linux and Windows versions available (the Windows version does not seem to work for all encodings). Visual
        Studio can convert the files from the "File &gt; Advanced Save Options" menu. There are other development environments
        and text editors, such as SciTE, that can convert files to UTF&#8209;8.</p>
    <p>
        Embedded statements that are multiple-line and are NOT in a C-type format, such as Python, are usually mal-formatted
        (a C-type format has blocks enclosed by braces and statements terminated by a semi-colon). Macros that define
        functions may cause the following code to be mal-formatted because the macro is missing the braces and semi-colons
        from the definition. If you have source code with these types of statements, exclude them with the
        <a href="#_exclude">exclude=####</a> option described in the <a href="#_Other_Options">Other Options</a>

    <h3 id="_Quick_Start">Quick Start</h3>

    <p>
        If you have never used Artistic Style, there are several of ways to get started.</p>
    <p>
        One is to run it with no options at all. This will use the <a href="#_default_brace_style">default brace
            style</a>, 4 spaces per indent, and no formatting changes.  This will break the braces for one
        line blocks and will break one line statements. To change this, use the option <a href="#_keep-one-line-blocks">keep-one-line-blocks</a>
        and/or <a href="#_keep-one-line-statements">keep-one-line-statements</a> described in the
        <a href="#_Formatting_Options">Formatting Options</a> section.</p>
    <p>
        Another way is to use one of the brace styles described in the <a href="#_Brace_Style_Options">Brace Style
            Options</a> section. Select one with a brace formatting style you like. If no indentation option is set,
        the default option of 4 spaces will be used. These options also break one line blocks and one line statements
        as described above.</p>
    <p>
        A third option is to use an options file from the &quot;file&quot; folder. If there is a coding style you want
        to duplicate, input the appropriate <a href="#_Option_Files">option file</a>. Use the option
        <a href="#_options">options=####</a> to specify the file to use. It must contain a path for the file, including
        the file name. </p>
    <p>
        Once you are familiar with the options you can customize the format to your personal preference.</p>

    <h3 id="_Usage">Usage</h3>

    <h4>Command Line</h4>

    <p>
        Artistic style is a console program that receives information from the command line.</p>
    <div class="code">
        <p class="code">
            Command line format:</p>
        <pre>astyle&nbsp; [OPTIONS]&nbsp; <em>SourceFilePath1&nbsp; SourceFilePath2&nbsp; SourceFilePath3&nbsp; [ . . . ]</em></pre>
    </div>
    <p>
        The square brackets [ ] indicate that more than one option or more than one file name can be entered. They are
        NOT actually included in the command. For the options format refer to the following Options section.</p>
    <div class="code">
        <p class="code">
            Example to format a single file:</p>
        <pre>astyle&nbsp; --style=allman&nbsp; /home/project/foo.cpp
</pre>
        <p class="code">
            Example to format C# files recursively:</p>
        <pre>astyle&nbsp; --style=allman&nbsp; --recursive&nbsp; /home/project/*.cs
</pre>
    </div>

    <h4>File Extensions</h4>

    <p>
        Multiple file extensions may be used if separated by commas or semicolons. An optional space may follow if the
        entire file path is enclosed in double quotes. There is no limit to the number of extensions used.
    </p>
    <div class="code">
        <p class="code">
            Example to format C++ files recursively using multiple file extensions:</p>
        <pre>astyle&nbsp; --style=allman&nbsp; --recursive&nbsp; /home/project/*.cpp,*.h
</pre>
    </div>

    <h4>Redirection</h4>

    <p>
        The < and > characters may be used to redirect the files into standard input (stdin) and out of standard output
        (stdout) - don't forget them! With this option, only one file at a time can be formatted. Wildcards are not
        recognized, there are no console messages, and a backup is not created. On Windows, the output will always have
        Windows line ends. The options "stdin=" and "stdout=" can be used instead of redirection.</p>
    <div class="code">
        <p class="code">
            Example of redirection option to format a single file and change the name:</p>
        <pre>astyle --style=allman &lt; <em>OriginalSourceFile</em> &gt; <em>BeautifiedSourceFile</em>

</pre>
    </div>
    <div class="code">
        <p class="code">
            The redirection option may be used to display the formatted file without updating:</p>

    <h3 id="_Options">Options</h3>

    <p>
        Not specifying any options will result in the <a href="#_default_brace_style">default brace style</a>,
        4 spaces per indent, and no formatting changes.</p>
    <p>
        This program follows the usual GNU command line syntax. Options may be written two different ways.</p>

    <h4>Long options</h4>

    <p>
        These options start with '<strong>--</strong>', and must be written one at a time.<br />
        (Example: '--style=allman --indent=spaces=4')</p>

    <h4>Short Options</h4>

    <p>
        These options start with a single '<strong>-</strong>', and may be concatenated together.<br />
        (Example: '-bps4' is the same as writing '-b -p -s4'.)</p>
    <p>
        &nbsp;</p>

    <h3 id="_Option_Files">Option Files</h3>

    <p>
        An OPTIONAL default option file and/or project option file may be used to supplement or replace the command
        line options. They may use the computer's standard encoding, UTF-8 or UTF-16 unicode encoding.</p>
    <p>
        Options may be set apart by new-lines, tabs, commas, or spaces. Long options in the option file may be written
        without the preceding '--'. Lines within the option file that begin with '#' are considered line-comments.
        The option files used in formatting and their location can be displayed by using the --verbose 
        option. </p>
    <ol>
        <li>The <strong>command line options</strong> have precedence. If there is a conflict between a command line option
            and an option in a default or project file, the command line option will be used.
        </li>
        <li>The <strong>project option file</strong> has precedence over the default option file but not the command line
            options. The project option file should be in the top directory of the project being formatted. The file is identified
            by a file name only. One of the command line <a href="#_project">project</a> options must be used to indicate
            a file is available, or it must be referred to by the environment variable. Artistic Style looks for the file
            in the current directory or one of its parent directories in the following order.
            <ul>
                <li>the file name indicated by the --project= command line option.</li>
                <li>the file named .astylerc or _ astylerc. </li>
                <li>the file name identified by the environment variable ARTISTIC_STYLE_PROJECT_OPTIONS if it exists.</li>
                <li>the file or environment variable can be disabled by specifying --project=none on the command line.</li>
            </ul>
            The file is expected to be in the top directory of the project being formatted. Only one file will be used per
            execution and all files to be formatted are assumed to be in the same project. Artistic Style will search 
            backward in the directory path to find the project option file. The initial directory path for the search is obtained
            from one of the following locations in the following order.
            <ul>
                <li>The first <em>SourceFilePath</em> entered on the command line.</li>
                <li>The value of "--stdin=" if it is used for redirection.</li>
                <li>The current directory if "<" is used for rediredction. If the file to be formatted is not in the current 
                    directory, use the "--stdin=" option instead.</li>
            </ul>
        </li>
        <li>The <strong>default option file</strong> can be used for all projects. The file is identified by a file path and
            a file name. One of the command line <a href="#_options">options</a> must be used to indicate a file is available,
            or it must be referred to by the environment variable. Artistic Style looks for a file path and file name in the
            following order.
            <ul>
                <li>the file path indicated by the --options= command line option.</li>
                <li>the file path indicated by the environment variable ARTISTIC_STYLE_OPTIONS if it exists.</li>
                <li>the file named .astylerc in the directory pointed to by the HOME environment variable 
                    (e.g. "$HOME<strong>/.</strong>astylerc" on Linux); </li>
                <li>the file named astylerc in the directory pointed to by the APPDATA environment variable 
                    (e.g. "%APPDATA%<strong>\</strong>astylerc" on Windows). </li>
                <li>the file or environment variable can be disabled by specifying --options=none on the command line.</li>
            </ul>
        </li>
    </ol>
    <p>
        Example of a default or project option file:</p>

    <h3 id="_Disable_Formatting">Disable Formatting</h3>

    <p>
        Formatting and indenting can be disabled with comment tags inserted in the source code.</p>

    <h4>Disable Block</h4>

    <p>
        Blocks of code can be disabled using &quot;off&quot; and &quot;on&quot; tags. The tags are included in the source
        file as comments. The comment may be a C comment (/* ... */) or a C++ line comment (//). The tag must be included
        in a single line comment. If the comment exceeds one line the indent tag will be ignored. Additional information
        can be included with the tag.</p>
    <p>
        The beginning tag is &quot;*INDENT-OFF*&quot; and the ending tag is &quot;*INDENT-ON*&quot;.
        They may be used anywhere in the program with the condition that parsing is partially disabled between the
        tags. Disabling partial statements may result in incorrect formatting after the ending tag. If this happens,
        expand the tags to include additional code.</p>
    <div class="code">
        <p class="code">
            The following retains the format of a preprocessor define:</p>
        <pre><span class="comment">// *INDENT-OFF*</span>
#define FOO_DECLARE_int32_(name) \
        FOO_API_ extern ::Int32 FOO_FLAG(name)
<span class="comment">// *INDENT-ON*</span></pre>
    </div>

    <h4>Disable Line</h4>

    <p>
        Artistic Style cannot always determine the usage of symbols with more than one meaning. For example an asterisk
        (*) can be multiplication, a pointer, or a pointer dereference. The &quot;&amp;&quot; and &quot;&amp;&amp;&quot;
        symbols are a similar
        problem.</p>
    <p>
        If a symbol is being padded incorrectly, padding it manually may fix the problem. If it is still being
        padded incorrectly, then disabling the formatting may be necessary. To avoid having to use the &quot;disable block&quot;
        tags above, a single line disable is available.</p>
    <p>
        A line-end comment tag &quot;*NOPAD*&quot; will disable the &quot;pad-oper&quot;, &quot;align-pointer&quot;, and
        &quot;align-reference&quot; options. Parsing does NOT stop and all other formatting will be applied to the line.
        The tag applies to the one line only.</p>
    <div class="code">
        <p class="code">
            The following prevents the operator padding from changing:</p>
        <pre>size_t foo = (unsigned int) -1;  <span class="comment">// *NOPAD*</span></pre>

    <h3 id="_Basic_Brace_Styles">Basic Brace Styles</h3>

    <p>
        There are three basic brace styles.<br />
        Attached &#8211; The braces are attached to the end of
        the last line of the previous block. (Java).<br />
        Broken &#8211; The braces are broken from the previous
        block. (Allman).<br />
        Linux &#8211; The braces are attached except for the opening brace of a function, class, or namespace (K&amp;R,
        Linux).</p>

    <p>
        Other brace styles are variations of these. Some will use variations on the placement of class, namespace,
        or other braces. (Stroustrup, Google, One True Brace, Lisp). Others will indent the braces (Whitesmith, VTK,
        Banner, and GNU). Others will use run-in braces where the following statement is on the same line as the
        brace (Horstmann and Pico).</p>
    <p>
        There are technical arguments for selecting one style over another. But the usual reason comes down to
        personal preference. Some like broken braces with vertical whitespace that makes the code easy to read.
        Others like attached braces with code that is more compact. Sometimes programmers just want a change. It is
        easier to select a preference if you can see an entire file formatted in a certain brace style. With Artistic
        Style you can easily modify source code to suit your
        preference.</p>

        The braces are attached to everything else, including arrays, structs, enums, and statements within a function.
        The <strong>minimum conditional indent</strong> is one-half indent. If you want a different minimum conditional
        indent, use the K&amp;R style instead. This style works best with a large indent. It frequently is used with
        an indent of 8 spaces.</p>
    <p>
        Also known as Kernel Normal Form (KNF) style, this is the style used in the Linux
        BSD kernel.</p>

        Horstmann style uses broken braces and run-in statements. Switches are indented to allow a run-in to the opening
        switch block. This style frequently is used with an indent of 3 spaces.</p>

        "One True Brace Style" uses linux braces and adds braces to unbraced one line conditional statements. Opening
        braces are broken from namespaces, classes, and function definitions. The braces are attached to everything
        else, including arrays, structs, enums, and statements within a function. </p>
    <p>
        In the following example, braces have been added to the "return 0;" statement. The option
        &#8209;&#8209;add&#8209;one&#8209;line&#8209;braces can also be used with this style.</p>

        will not change the reference alignment. The other options are the same as for align-pointer. This option is for
        C/C++, C++/CLI, and C# files.</p>

    <h3 id="_Other_Options">Other Options</h3>

    <p>
        These are non-formatting options available for the command-line. They can also be included in an option
        file.</p>

    <p id="_suffix">
        <code class="title">--suffix=<span class="option">####</span></code><br />
        Append the suffix #### instead of '.orig' to original file name (e.g. --suffix=<span class="option">.bak</span>.
        If this is to be a file extension, the dot '.' must be included. Otherwise the suffix will be appended to the
        current file extension.</p>
    <p id="_suffix=none">
        <code class="title">--suffix=none / -n</code><br />
        Do not retain a backup of the original file. The original file is purged after it is formatted.</p>
    <p id="_recursive">
        <code class="title">--recursive / -r / -R</code><br />
        For each directory in the command line, process all subdirectories recursively. When using the recursive option
        the file name statement should contain a wildcard. Linux users should place the file path and name in double quotes
        so the shell will not resolve the wildcards (e.g. "$HOME/src/*.cpp"). Windows users should place the file path
        and name in double quotes if the path or name contains spaces.</p>
    <p id="_dry-run">
        <code class="title">--dry-run</code><br />
        Perform a trial run with no changes made to the files. The report will be output as usual.</p>
    <p id="_exclude">
        <code class="title">--exclude=<span class="option">####</span></code><br />
        Specify a file or subdirectory #### to be excluded from processing.</p>
    <p>
        Excludes are matched from the end of the file path. An exclude option of "templates" will exclude ALL directories
        named "templates". An exclude option of "cpp/templates" will exclude ALL "cpp/templates" directories. You may
        proceed backward in the directory tree to exclude only the required directories.</p>
    <p>
        Specific files may be excluded in the same manner. An exclude option of "default.cpp" will exclude ALL files
        named "default.cpp". An exclude option of "python/default.cpp" will exclude ALL files named "default.cpp"
        contained in a "python" subdirectory. You may proceed backward in the directory tree to exclude only the
        required files.</p>
    <p>
        Wildcards are NOT allowed. There may be more than one exclude statement. The file path and name may be placed
        in double quotes (e.g. &#8209;&#8209;exclude="foo&nbsp;bar.cpp").</p>
    <p id="_ignore-exclude-errors">
        <code class="title">--ignore-exclude-errors / -i</code><br />
        Allow processing to continue if there are errors in the "exclude=###" options.<br />
        This option lets the excludes for several projects be entered in a single option file. This option may be placed
        in the same option file as the excludes. It will display the unmatched excludes. The following option will not
        display the unmatched excludes.</p>
    <p id="_ignore-exclude-errors-x">
        <code class="title">--ignore-exclude-errors-x / -xi</code><br />
        <code class="title"></code>Allow processing to continue if there are errors in the "exclude=###" options.<br />
        This option lets the excludes for several projects be entered in a single option file. This option may be placed
        in the same option file as the excludes. It will NOT display the unmatched excludes. The preceding option will
        display the unmatched excludes.</p>
    <p id="_errors-to-stdout">
        <code class="title">--errors-to-stdout / -X</code><br />
        Print errors to standard-output rather than to standard-error.<br />
        This option should be helpful for systems/shells that do not have a separate output to standard-error, such as
        in Windows95.</p>
    <p id="_preserve-date">
        <code class="title">--preserve-date / -Z</code><br />
        Preserve the original file's date and time modified. The time modified will be changed a few microseconds to
        force the changed files to compile. This option is not effective if redirection is used to rename the input
        file.</p>
    <p id="_verbose">
        <code class="title">--verbose / -v</code><br />
        Verbose display mode. Display optional information, such as release number, date, 
        option file locations, and statistical data.</p>
    <p id="_formatted">
        <code class="title">--formatted / -Q</code><br />
        Formatted files display mode. Display only the files that have been formatted. Do not display files that
        are unchanged.</p>
    <p id="_quiet">
        <code class="title">--quiet / -q</code><br />
        Quiet display mode. Suppress all output except error messages.</p>
    <p id="_lineend">
        <code class="title">--lineend=windows&nbsp;/ -z1<br />
            --lineend=linux &nbsp; / -z2<br />
            --lineend=macold&nbsp;&nbsp;/ -z3
        </code><br />
        Force use of the specified line end style. Valid options are windows (CRLF), linux (LF), and macold (CR). MacOld
        style is the format for Mac&nbsp;OS&nbsp;9 and earlier. MacOS and OS&nbsp;X uses the Linux style. If one of
        these options is not used, the line ends will be determined automatically from the input file.</p>
    <p>
        When <strong>redirection</strong> is used on Windows the output will always have Windows line ends. This option
        will be ignored.</p>

    <h3 id="_Command_Line_Only">Command Line Only</h3>

    <p>These options are available for the command-line only. They are NOT available in an options file.</p>

    <p id="_options">
        <code class="title">--options=<span class="option">####</span></code><br />
        <code class="title">--options=none</code><br />
        Specify an options file #### to read and use. It must contain a file path and a file name. This will allow
        the file name to be changed from astylerc or .astylerc.</p>
    <p>
        The "none" option will disable the default options file if one exists. Only command-line parameters will be used.
    </p>
    <p>
        Further information is available in the <a href="#_Option_Files">Option&nbsp;Files</a> section.</p>
    <p id="_project">
        <code class="title">--project</code><br />
        <code class="title">--project=<span class="option">####</span></code><br />
        <code class="title">--project=none</code> <br />
        Specify a project option file to use. The option file 
        should have&nbsp; the default name of .astylerc or _astylerc and should be in the top directory of the project
        being formatted. </p>
    <p>
        Specify a  project options file #### to use. It must contain a file name only without a directory path.
        This will allow the project file name to be changed from .astylerc or _astylerc. It should be in the top directory
        of the project being formatted. </p>
    <p>
        The "none" option will disable a project options file if one exists. In this case, the project option file will
        not be used.</p>
    <p>
        Further information is available in the <a href="#_Option_Files">Option&nbsp;Files</a> section.</p>
    <p id="_ascii">
        <code class="title">--ascii / -I</code><br />
        The displayed output will be ASCII characters only. The text will be displayed in English and numbers will not
        be formatted. The short option must be by itself, it cannot be concatenated with other options.</p>
    <p id="_version">
        <code class="title">--version / -V</code><br />
        Print version number and quit. The short option must be by itself, it cannot be concatenated with other
        options.</p>
    <p id="_help">
        <code class="title">--help / -h / -?</code><br />
        Print a help message and quit. The short option must be by itself, it cannot be concatenated with other
        options.</p>
    <p id="_html">
        <code class="title">--html / -!</code><br />
        Open the HTML help file "astyle.html" in the default browser and quit. The short option must be by itself, it
        cannot be concatenated with other options. The documentation must be installed in the standard install path (/usr/share/doc/astyle/html
        for Linux or %PROGRAMFILES%\AStyle\doc for Windows). If installed to a different path use html=###.</p>
    <p id="_html=">
        <code class="title">--html=<span class="option">####</span></code><br />
        Open an HTML help file in the default browser using the file path #### and quit. An HTML file other than "astyle.help"
        may be specified. The path may include a directory path and a file name, or a file name only (e.g. html=install.html).
        If only a file name is used, it is assumed to be in the standard install path (/usr/share/doc/astyle/html
        for Linux or %PROGRAMFILES%\AStyle\doc for Windows). In both cases, the file name must include the html extension.
        File paths containing spaces must be enclosed in quotes.</p>
    <p>
        On Linux the HTML file is opened using the script "xdg-open" from the install package "xdg-utils". This should
        be installed by default on most distributions.</p>
    <p>
        Any HTML file can be opened by this option. The files you are likely to need are astyle.html (the default), install.html,
        and index.html.</p>
    <p id="_stdin=">
        <code class="title">--stdin=<span class="option">####</span></code><br />
        Open a file using the file path #### as input to single file formatting. This is a replacement for redirection.
        Do not use this with "&lt;" redirection.</p>
    <p id="_stdout=">
        <code class="title">--stdout=<span class="option">####</span></code><br />
        Open a file using the file path #### as output from single file formatting. This is a replacement for redirection.
