Pretty print

    vkbeautify.xml(text [,indent_pattern]);
    vkbeautify.json(text [,indent_pattern]);
    vkbeautify.css(text [,indent_pattern]);
    vkbeautify.sql(text [,indent_pattern]);

    @text - String; text to beatufy;
    @indent_pattern - Integer | String;
            Integer:  number of white spaces;
            String:   character string to visualize indentation ( can also be a set of white spaces )


    vkbeautify.xmlmin(text [,preserve_comments]);
    vkbeautify.cssmin(text [,preserve_comments]);

    @text - String; text to minify;
    @preserve_comments - Bool; [optional];
            Set this flag to true to prevent removing comments from @text ( minxml and mincss functions only. )


    vkbeautify.xml(text); // pretty print XML
    vkbeautify.json(text, 4 ); // pretty print JSON
    vkbeautify.css(text, '. . . .'); // pretty print CSS
    vkbeautify.sql(text, '----'); // pretty print SQL

    vkbeautify.xmlmin(text, true);// minify XML, preserve comments
    vkbeautify.jsonmin(text);// minify JSON
    vkbeautify.cssmin(text);// minify CSS, remove comments ( default )
    vkbeautify.sqlmin(text);// minify SQL
