Checking how to do code-formatting

I was giving a quick look on how could the code-formatter be better, and having researched a little on how would it do the 'pretty-print' I found some references:

Dealing with comments:

Approach 1 (using special token):
- https://javacc.dev.java.net

Approach 2 (not using special token and actually putting comments in the parsing.
- http://cvs.sourceforge.net/viewcvs.py/jrefactory

Currently, I generate an asdl structure that would also need to be extended to be supported later, but I guess I'll have to work on this myself, as I could not find any reference about comments in asdl... anyone has any suggestions?

And a little 'offtopic' but also for javaCC:

Is there a way to code format the entire project in pydev?
