In the commit for SERVER-22469, C-style comments rewrapped correctly, but C++-style comments came out looking like (e.g. db.js): // We have special handling for the 'flags' field, and provide sugar for specific flags. If // the // user specifies any flags we send the field in the command. Otherwise, we leave it blank // and // use the server's defaults. and //////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////// //////////////////////////// Security shell helpers below ///////////////////////////////////////////// ////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////

max.hirschhorn@10gen.com commented on Tue, 16 May 2017 14:41:00 +0000: When clang-format wraps multiple lines that are over 100 characters onto separate lines, each wrapped at 100 characters. This behavior was known and was something that Mark worked around in SERVER-18978. We can try and use a script similar to find . -regextype posix-egrep -regex ".*\.(cpp|h)" | grep -v rlp_decls | xargs -I{} grep -H --color '.\{101\}' {} | wc -l to identify any other lines that should be reflowed.
