NAME
  cb - Converts C source code into a readable form

SYNOPSIS

  cb [-js] [-llength] [file ...]

  The cb command reads C programs from standard input or from specified files
  and writes them to standard output in a form that shows, through indenta-
  tions and spacing, the structure of the code.

FLAGS

  -j  Joins split lines.

  -llength
      Splits lines that are longer than length bytes.

  -s  Formats the source code according to the style of Kernighan and Ritchie
      in The C Programming Language (Prentice-Hall, Inc., 1978; Englewood
      Cliffs, New Jersey.)

DESCRIPTION

  When called without flags, the cb command does not split or join lines.
  Note that punctuation in preprocessor statements can cause indentation
  errors.

EXAMPLES

  To create a version of pgm.c called pgm.pretty.c that is easy to read, with
  no lines longer than 60 bytes, enter:

       cb  -l60 pgm.c  > pgm.pretty.c
