I find that I am writing long function signatures with where, and wondering about the proper formatting and style. Suppose one wants to put a linebreak in

function LongConstructorName(value::T, gradient::S) where {T <: Real, S <: AbstractVector{T}}
1+1
end

doing it before where is not allowed AFAICT,

doing it after where

function LongConstructorName(value::T, gradient::S)
where {T <: Real, S <: AbstractVector{T}}
1+1
end

which is how it is indented in Emacs merges the code visually with the where, should this be fixed?

the indented version is slightly better

function LongConstructorName(value::T, gradient::S)
where {T <: Real, S <: AbstractVector{T}}
1+1
end

where must follow the closing ) of the function arglist on the same line as that closing paren. That ) itself can be on the line following the final arg of the arglist, or not.

the wherefores that follow where should be in {} (it looks better and is easier to read, although it is not now required). That part of the function signature does not have to be on the same line.

if function begins in column 1, then the function declaration/specification/definition ends with end in column 1. None of the lines of program source text between them should start in the first column. This is long standing practice, you may prefer stepping in with 4spaces [which is most commonly used (see Base)] or some other favorite indent. Doing so makes your code much more transparent to others.
