It would be nice to have some code style guidelines to improve code readability etc.

The actual reason is that i've some problems with kdevelop4 that are annoying me :D (sometimes scopes are indented 2 spaces others 4 and kdevelop doesn't notice that). If there would be a guideline i could tweak my ide to use that.

Should they be formated like this?

Code: Select all

float& myCalcFunction(float p1, float p2)
    myClass->doSomething(p1, p2);
