I love the matching braces! When did they invent that???
Probably 'they' invented it c1970 but I suspect it had been used earlier. See Indentation style - Wikipedia[^] for Allman braces and match the date with BSD Berkeley Software Distribution - Wikipedia[^]

It is definitely the way I was shown for Algol 60 (although the braces were then tokens called begin and end) and the one that I have used ever since. Many other folks have independently 'invented' it. If K&R's bracing is TOOTBS (The One and Only True Brace Style, Allman's bracing is TOOLBS (The One and Only Logical Brace Style) or TOOSBS (The One and Only Sensible Brace Style). Much, much, much easier for matching starts and ends of blocks; much, much, much easier for finding mismatched braces.
