Testing pretty:

$ find test/ -type f -name 'test*.e' -exec se pretty -default "{}" \;

and check that output of

$ git status --porcelain test/

is empty?

A quick note, in the feature subcluster of the compiler

feature assigner: FEATURE_NAME -- If this feature can be assigned to, the assigner feature name.

is declared in ANONYMOUS_FEATURE while it seems to me a little too generic. Also EFFECTIVE_ROUTINE is "too wide" as it is kown children are E_FUNCTION, E_PROCEDURE, ONCE_ROUTINE, and E_FUNCTION can't be an assign an attribute

Shouldn't it be declared into E_PROCEDURE?

good catch. These issues are likely to affect all (future) language/syntax changes, as we will forget to adjust pretty :-(

any ideas how we can test pretty in ET? Running pretty on ALL tests before compiling them could be quite hard...

A class processed by pretty loses its assigns:

class FOO
  value: INTEGER
  set_value(a_value:INTEGER) assign value

is changed by pretty into

class FOO
  value: INTEGER

Quite obviously it will break other people code.
