Dowloading Findent

The bleeding edge is available here. The current version is 4.3.3~pre01 .

Previous versions are available on sourceforge

Note: the Chromium browser translates the character '~' into '_' in the name of a downloaded file.


findent is available as source for Linux and OS-X and as executable for Windows:

   tar xf findent-4.3.3~pre01.tar.gz
