What does indent mean?
"Indent" is a live album by Cecil Taylor recorded in Ohio in March 1973 and originally released on Taylor's own Unit Core label as Mysteries and subsequently more widely released on the Arista Freedom label as Indent. It was the first solo piano performance released by Taylor but was recorded over four years after Praxis which saw limited release in 1982. The Allmusic review by Scott Yanow states "Taylor is quite stunning in his control of the piano, his wide range of percussive sound and his endurance. As is often true of Cecil Taylor's music, this recital is not for the faint-of-heart, but those with open ears will find it rewarding and certainly stimulating".
indent is a Unix utility that reformats C and C++ code in a user-defined indent style and coding style. Support for C++ code is considered experimental.
