Say you have a function like so:

wait_for()
{
tmp=$(mktemp -u)
mkfifo $tmp
inotifywait -m --format=%f -e create "${1%/*}" > $tmp 2>&1 &
while read output
do
case $output in "Watches established.") test -p "$1" && break ;; "${1##*/}") break ;; esac
done < $tmp
rm -f $tmp
}

If you run it with the command:

type wait_for

You will get re-formatted bash code like so:

wait_for is a function
wait_for ()
{
    tmp=$(mktemp -u);
    mkfifo $tmp;
    inotifywait -m --format=%f -e create "${1%/*}" > $tmp 2
>&1 & while read output; do
        case $output in
            "Watches established.")
                test -p "$1" && break
            ;;
            "${1##*/}")
                break
            ;;
        esac;
    done < $tmp;
    rm -f $tmp
}

Lovely eh?
