Hi! I use XEmacs to edit my

I use XEmacs to edit my source-codes. My "problem" is that the indentation-convention (Nr of spaces to indent for a new block etc) of the C++-mode is not the same as that used in the OpenFoam-sources. Therefor editing a OF-Source-file means either not using the Emacs-indentation or "messing" it up.

Of course (it is Emacs we're talking about) these conventions can be customized by setting a bunch of variables.

My question is the following: has anyone already done this and could she pass me these settings.

thanks for listening

PS: Hope I don't start a religious discussion ("Vi versus Emacs" or "XEmacs is not Emacs) here

I've found this link on the web:
Ident Finder

Indent Finder is a python script that reads a file and tells you what indentation is used inside the file. The indentation analysis works on any language. It was tested successfully with C, C++, python and Java code.
The current version provides helps for the integration with vim.

Maybe I will be helpfull
