Default clang-format config for Pawn

I recently realised clang-format (the clang formatting tool for C++, Java, ObjC and a few other languages) quite happily reads most Pawn code.

You can check out the tool here: and play with configs here: or here:

So, being a lover of conventions and strict formatting, I attempted to write a clang format config for Pawn based on the conventions that the community have adopted over the years.

It looks like this:

And the configuration is:

BasedOnStyle: WebKit
IndentWidth: 4
Language: Cpp
AlignAfterOpenBracket: DontAlign
BreakBeforeBraces: Allman
BreakConstructorInitializers: BeforeColon
SpaceBeforeCtorInitializerColon: false
SpaceBeforeInheritanceColon: false
KeepEmptyLinesAtTheStartOfBlocks: false
MaxEmptyLinesToKeep: 1
SortIncludes: true
SpaceBeforeAssignmentOperators: false
The only issue, as you can see in the gif above, foreach is broken and I can't figure out a solution for it (outside of writing my own formatter - which was doing, and may continue).

If anyone wants to contribute, go ahead! It would be nice to have a universal format that is also enforced by a tool that can eventually be implemented into the Pawn Tools for VS Code extension so source code is formatted upon saving the file to save time while writing.
