Perltidy TODO List This is a partial "wish-list" of features to add and things to do. All of these are of interest, but there is no particular schedule for implementing them. Improved Vertical Alignment There are many opportunities for improving vertical alignment. Documentation A FAQ is needed to explain some of the more subtle formatting issues, and to give examples of different styles. The -formatter callback object documentation is incomplete. HTML writer The HTML writer does not colorize interpolated identifiers in here documents or quoted strings. The tokenizer outputs interpolation information for here docs; it still needs to be updated to do this for multi-line quotes. Then code needs to be written to scan for and markup identifiers. Automatic style detection It would be nice to write a program to read a sample of perl code and write an approximate .perltidyrc file for that style. Things which have been suggested but will not be done Recursive file processing A -r flag might be nice, but this is probably best handled by an exterior shell script.
