Code Reformatting

We recently (early 2015) reformatted all the OpenSSL code, in all release branches.

As a result the code is consistent and, to almost everyone, easier to read.

The style policy is at [[1]]

Matt wrote a couple of blog entries about the reformatting: [[2]] and [[3]].

If you have a smaller number of local patches, you might find this recipe useful to upgrade:

  • Take the original release you are currently using. Reformat it according to the second blog entry. Don't worry too much about minor failures or inconsistencies. Save that.
  • Take your patched release. Reformat it according to the second blog entry. Don't worry too much about minor failures or inconsistencies. Save that.
  • Run a diff between the two releases. You should, for the most part, have just your patches, reformatted.
