0006734: Rectangular Block code formatting, courtesy of Refactoring Browser.
This change set formats your code per the well-reasoned "Rectangular Block" and "Indented Control Flow" patterns championed by Kent Beck in his book, "Smalltalk Best Practice Patterns".

I also found them referenced from Ward's site: [^]

To work, first make sure the Refactoring Browser is loaded. Then file in the attached change-set. It also fixes problems associated with RbFormat where, in >= 3.9 only, it was deleting comments! I think I have all of these fixed.

Be sure to check "useRBASTForPrettyPrint" in Preferences panel.

I've put the changes to the RefactoringBrowser in its repository ( RefactoringEngine-dc.38).

I've attached the changes made to the AST package to the bug report because I can't publish them to the AST repository (don't have write access). Can someone have a look and integrate them please?

In my opinion, the changes to ParagraphEditor are not mandatory; I may be wrong, tell me if it's the case.

Yes, the changes to ParagraphEditor are necessary for good usability. They allow reformat to be invoked with Alt+Shift+S and don't needlessly refuse when no method category is selected.

Just added AST-cmm.152.mcz which is merged with AST-ms.151.
