            Despite of several project owner changes, this utility has improved a lot over time. I'm using it for more than 10 years.

            Not available anymore
            The home page listed has been dead for the past two weeks, and author did not respond to my email asking for the source code. It looks like the program has been abandoned, and worst of all I was unable to find any other site with the source code.

            Does anybody have a copy of the source for this program?

            Useful utility
            Artistic Style is a great utility for converting code to a standard. The only features that I would like to see added is one for importing styles from editors such as emacs and jove. The other feature is another way to customize the styles without recompiling.
