In a previous post, I present some emacs functions for code reformatting. These are great for interactive work, but what if you need to do this to a whole source directory in bulk or done automatically once a night? Here's a small shell script that does just that.:
#!/bin/bash # PUBLIC DOMAIN if [ -z "$1" ]; then echo usage: $0 file-to-indent file2 file3 ... exit 1 fi for i in $@; do echo Loading $i emacs --batch --load ~/.emacs --file $i \ --execute '(buffer-cleanup)' --execute '(save-buffer)' done
Definitely not the most efficient system, but hopefully this doesn't need to be high performance.

emacs --batch $1 -l ./emacs -f buffer_cleanup -f save-buffer
works in latest emacs
