;;; tidyall.el -- Apply tidyall ( to the current buffer
;; Copyright (C) 2012 Jonathan Swartz
;; Author: Jonathan Swartz <>
;; Keywords: extensions
;; Status: Tested with Emacs 24.1.1
;; This file is *NOT* part of GNU Emacs.

;; This package implements a single function, tidyall-buffer, which
;; runs tidyall ( on the current buffer.
;; If successful, the contents of the buffer are replaced with the tidied contents, and
;; the buffer is saved if tidyall-autosave is true. The modifications should be
;; undoable.
;; If tidyall generates any errors, the buffer is not changed, and a separate window
;; called *tidyall-output* is opened displaying the error.
;; To operate on just a region of the buffer, use narrow-to-region.
;; To assign this command to ctrl-t globally:
;; (global-set-key "\C-t" 'tidyall-buffer)
;; Or to assign it locally in, e.g., perl-mode:
;; (setq perl-mode-hook
;; '(lambda ()
;; (local-set-key "\C-t" 'tidyall-buffer)
;; ))
;; (This replaces the default binding to transpose-chars, which I never use but ymmv.)
;; The variable `tidyall-cmd` contains the path to the tidyall command.
(setq tidyall-cmd "tidyall")
;; The variable `tidyall-autosave` indicates whether to save the buffer after a successful
;; tidy - defaults to t
(setq tidyall-autosave t)
