Description ollika 2013-12-04 14:21:43 UTC
I don't usually use parentheses in return statements, but if I do, I want the space there. For example:

  return (this || that);

But I don't want a space when using the sizeof operator:


Currently both cases are governed by the "Other Keywords" formatting option in "Spaces Before Parentheses"
category so I can't configure them separately. It would probably be enough just to be able to configure
"return" statement separately.

Also I could not find a way to configure spaces for C++ style casting (const_cast, static_cast,
dynamic_cast, and reinterpret_cast). For example my:


is formatted to:

  static_cast<int> (test);

I think the most commonly used style is to not use a space, but the safest option would be to add a
configurable parameter for these too.
