5.107. indent

An updated indent package that fixes two bugs is now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.
The indent package provides a utility to convert from one C writing style to a different one. Indent understands correct C syntax and can handle incorrect C syntax.

Bug Fixes

Prior to this update, suffixes were incorrectly separated when running the indent utility on code with decimal float constants. As a consequence, indent could encounter a compilation syntax error. This update modifies indent to understand decimal float suffixes as proposed by the N1312 draft of ISO/IEC WDTR24732. Now, indent handles decimal float constants as expected.
Prior to this update, the internal test-suite did not signal test failure by exit code if indent failed to pass the test. This update adds an exit call with non-zero value to signal failure.
All users of indent are advised to upgrade to this updated package, which fixes these bugs.
