[erlang-questions] prettypr and spec
Tue Sep 25 22:31:00 CEST 2012

I've looked at this and it reads from .beam files. Same problem as before:
as specified I need to parse string() code.
Do I really have to write my own erlang indenter? That really seems weird.
Isn't there such a thing like a DSL for indenters?
