section over to our dedicated coding guide and linking to it instead.

Code Style
==========
We use `clang-format`_ to define our style for C++ code in the CMake source
tree. See the `.clang-format`_ configuration file for our style settings.
Use ``clang-format`` version 3.8 or higher to format source files.
See also the `Utilities/Scripts/clang-format.bash`_ script.

C++ Code Style
==============
We use `clang-format`_ version **3.8** to define our style for C++ code in
the CMake source tree. See the `.clang-format`_ configuration file for our
style settings. Use the `Utilities/Scripts/clang-format.bash`_ script to
format source code. It automatically runs ``clang-format`` on the set of
source files for which we enforce style. The script also has options to
format only a subset of files, such as those that are locally modified.
