Reformat a C golf submission

Take this C golf submission (for the "tiny but standards-compliant Hello World program" category, naturally), and turn it into formatted C code.

Start file
#include<stdio.h>
int main(void){puts("Hello world!");return 0;}
End file
#include <stdio.h>

int main(void)
{
    puts("Hello world!");
    return 0;
}
