cc-mode(since version 3.229) is a customizable environment to format C++ (and C) code in a consistent way. It is suggested to use this code to ensure homogeneity of the format while leaving details (how to comment, where to put braces etc.) to the author (via customization in the Emacs initialization file .emacs). This Emacs Lisp file should work with all Emacsen available: GNU Emacs, Epoch, Lucid Emacs etc.
This Emacs mode has recently been improved very much by Barry Warsaw. It is still under active development and discussion. The online-help of the current version is available.
An older copy of c++-mode.el is distributed together with the releases for GNU libg++ and Emacs (since version 19)
cc-mode.tar.gz. See the header of the file for introduction and installation. A complete TeXinfo documentation for GNU Emacs is in preparation.
