This might be a relatively straight-forward modification of the AdaGIDE
reformatter (available as a standalone from

There is a function Check_Continuation_Line which has a rule set for
determining whether it thinks you are at the end of a statement.  You'd have

counted as many lines changed.  i have come to the conclusion the
only way to do this is to run a pretty printer first on both versions
that compresses all ada statements into single line statements, then
run the script.  kind of painful since i have to write the code to
compress the source code ;-)  oh well it was a nice idea for a while.

if anyone knows of a pretty printer that will do this correctly for
all ada constructs, please let me know.
