    Default how to indent

    In brief, I'm feeding my code a piece of unformatted source code. My code transforms the text into a string, then list in order to easily iterate through the latter and format depending on the keyword/expression come across. Now, on coming across '{' a break is executed, but how do you suggest I do the indentation "logic"?

    For instance
    public class jello{ public static main(String[] args){ jello a = new jello(); run();} public boolean run(){ if (x =1){ ok}}}
    It should return,
    public class jello
       public static main(String[] args)
          jello a = new jello(); 
      public boolean run() 
          if (x ==1)
              return ok; 
    How do you suggest I "code" the indentation?

    Many thanks!
