Can I format a C++ file wth perltidy?  My C++ file has comments like:

//-------------------------------------------------------
//                Header
//-------------------------------------------------------

Perltidy screws this up.  It works REAL well with vi to format much
of the code but it seems to have trouble with comments.  Is there
a cpptidy or some flag I can set to fix this?

Well, there are C++ beautifiers out there: http://www.faqs.org/docs/Linux-HOWTO/C-C++Beautifier-HOWTO.html#

As for perltidy, maybe http://www.perlmonks.org/?node_id=619780 helps.

Visual Studio 2005 Express does a reasonable job of prettifying code. You just open the file, CTRL-A to select all CTRL-K+ CTRL-F to format it.
