;;; Commentary:
;; This library tries to indent java annotations
;; (
;; like the code examples listed in the webpage.

;; To use this library first ensure that
;; java-mode-indent-annotations.el is in your load path and load it
;; like so :
;; (require 'java-mode-indent-annotations)

;; Next, call the `java-mode-indent-annotations-setup' function to your
;; `java-mode-hook' or `jde-mode-hook' after any calls to
;; `c-set-style'.

;; The setup function adds one of the custom indentation functions
;; `c-single-indent-after-java-annotations' or
;; `c-no-indent-after-java-annotations' to the offset lists of the
;; symbols arglist-intro, topmost-intro-cont, arglist-intro,
;; arglist-close, statement-cont and func-decl-cont.  See the
;; documentation strings for `c-single-indent-after-java-annotations'
;; and `c-no-indent-after-java-annotations' for more info on what they
;; do.

;;; Code:

  (require 'cc-defs))

  "Find the offset entry for SYMBOL and add OFFSET at the front of the list.
See `c-set-offset' for a description of OFFSET and SYMBOL."
