Then you should look into what itäs doing and learn your editor, even
tough it's called cindent i more of context indent the c language
indent. Some parts of it works with python but autoindening the whole
file doesn't of understandable reasons. Peronaly I have gorwn so used to
cindent (or the simularity in emacs) that I can't program without. Well
actually I didn't do any serius programing in vi untill vim came around
with just that feature. Since then I haven't used Emacs more on some
minor ocations par programing with other programmers.
