RSART- Code generation Style

Mostly need to add line feeds in spots to keep total line length readable, and make line based file comparisons easier, and for readability for review

add line feed after each inheritance, C++ and IDL

bad

foo : public virtual A, public virtual B, public virtual C {

good

foo
: public virtual A
, public virtual B
, public virtual C
{

add line feed after each parameter in operations, C++ and IDL

bad

foo (type A, type B, type C)
{

good

foo
( type A
, type B
, type C)
{

add line feeds (as needed) when attribute has documentation, for readability

bad

typeZ instanceZ;
typeA instanceA;
// comment
typeB instanceB;
typeX instanceX;
typeY instanceY;

good

typeZ instanceZ;
typeA instanceA;

// comment
typeB instanceB;

typeX instanceX;
typeY instanceY;

add line feeds for param doc (IDL)

bad

// operation doc
void foo (type instance , // param doc
type instance // param doc
);

good

// operation doc
void foo
(
// param doc
type instance
,
// param doc
type instance
);

bad

// operation doc
void foo (type instance // param doc line 1 // param doc line 2 // param doc line 3
);

good

// operation doc
void foo
(

    Using the CDT code style would be a good solution to this issue.
