Hi forumers!

Can I auto-format a prolog file? I mean have all predicates and comments etc. pretty printed like a  portray_clause/1 ?? I would like to auto-format while I am editing a file in the PceEmacs. I have very little experience about Emacs.

Single-line auto-indent is provided by the TAB key. PceEmacs does not
provide a file/block re-indenter. AFAIK, there is still no really good
auto indenter available for Prolog. That is a shame :( All the stuff
to build one is available in SWI-Prolog and it is a nice challenge to
exploit this ...
