I think it was the default (it is hard to remember how long I've carried
the same init file from machine to machine). I just configured it to
conform to our coding standandards. :-)

I knew about it a long time ago, but forgot due to not using it often

Never in the last two years or so. But there are times when I should.
Especially when typing in initializers for arrays of structures. I do not
always want to see them formatted as C code, especially when they are
short (pointer, length) pairs.

Mostly C, with a little bit of C++ and Java. Occasionally I do some
assembly code for various CPUs/micro controllers.

I am quite happy with the current functionality set of the CC mode. I
wouldn't mind any feature being off by default. If it is useful I would
turn it on as soon as I learn about its existence, or if I notice
something that used to be there but isn't anymore. :-)
