I'm working on a project which uses a LOCK/END_LOCK macro pair for
mutex locking in C++ source files.  A typical section of code would
look like:

    LOCK (myDataLock)
        myData = foo;

How can I convince the indenting engine to treat the LOCK and END_LOCK
lines as beginning and ending blocks?

If you wrote the macro in a certain way, you can use braces in your source code (thus obviating your problem):

#define WITH_MUTEX_LOCK (l) \ for (int WITH_MUTEX_LOCK_ret = (0 == pthread_mutex_lock (l)); \ WITH_MUTEX_LOCK_ret; \ WITH_MUTEX_LOCK_ret = 0, (void) pthread_mutex_unlock (l)) \

That's at least one solution (perhaps not the best). Then you would write:

    WITH_MUTEX_LOCK (myDataLock) {
       myData = foo;
