The expert uses the Gnu 'Indent' program which is included in the distribution file.


Extract the downloaded zip file and load the project file in the Builder IDE. Compile and install it. You should then see a new entry under the Edit menu: C++ Format. You may get an error when first installing the expert. This error occurs if you don't have the files indent.exe and in the correct directory. The error message tells you where to copy them.
