eclipse code format settings

Hi Christian,

We did use mx ideinit when setting up the workspace.

However, in Eclipse the formatters that show up are the built-in ones (Eclipse (built-in), Eclipse 2.1 (built-in), and Java Conventions (built-in)).

Would it be okay to apply one of these to the whole code and if so which one?

Thomas or Christian,

Do either of you use Eclipse? If so, can you export your Eclipse code format settings for the Graal project and send them to me?
That way, I can easily get my changes into the right formatting.

I thought you folks use mx and ideinit?  This should set up Eclipse with the right formatting settings among other things.
