      • isIndentChar

        public static boolean isIndentChar​(char ch)
        Returns true if the given character is an indentation character. Indentation character are all whitespace characters except the line delimiter characters.
        Parameters:
        ch - the given character
        Returns:
        Returns true if this the character is a indent character, false otherwise
      • isLineDelimiterChar

        public static boolean isLineDelimiterChar​(char ch)
        Returns true if the given character is a line delimiter character.

      • measureIndentUnits

        public static int measureIndentUnits​(CharSequence line,
                                             int tabWidth,
                                             int indentWidth)
        Returns the indentation of the given line in indentation units. Odd spaces are not counted. This method only analyzes the content of line up to the first non-whitespace character.
        Parameters:
        line - the string to measure the indent of
        tabWidth - the width of one tab character in space equivalents
        indentWidth - the width of one indentation unit in space equivalents
        Returns:
        the number of indentation units that line is indented by
        Throws:
        IllegalArgumentException - if:
        • the given indentWidth is lower than zero
        • the given tabWidth is lower than zero
        • the given line is null
      • measureIndentInSpaces

        public static int measureIndentInSpaces​(CharSequence line,
                                                int tabWidth)
        Returns the indentation of the given line in space equivalents.

        Tab characters are counted using the given tabWidth and every other indent character as one. This method analyzes the content of line up to the first non-whitespace character.

        Parameters:
        line - the string to measure the indent of
        tabWidth - the width of one tab in space equivalents
        Returns:
        the measured indent width in space equivalents
        Throws:
        IllegalArgumentException - if:
        • the given line is null
        • the given tabWidth is lower than zero

        Returns the leading indentation string of the given line. Note that the returned string need not be equal to the leading whitespace as odd spaces are not considered part of the indentation.
        Parameters:
        line - the line to scan
        tabWidth - the size of one tab in space equivalents
        indentWidth - the width of one indentation unit in space equivalents

        IllegalArgumentException - if:
        • the given indentWidth is lower than zero
        • the given tabWidth is lower than zero
        • the given line is null
