No, that's not the answer...

Go to the first hit, then select the first item.

You'll see:

;; -*- mode: Lisp; fill-column: 75; comment-column: 50; -*

Which is good for Lisp, but I think you're looking for C.

So you want:

/* -*- mode: C; c-basic-offset: 1; -*- */

Put a line like that at the top of each file with the offset the file
uses.
