I am trying to capture the DDL for a procedure from a SQL*Plus job. It works however it removes any whitespace on the left.
making this:
IF SOMETHING
   DO THIS;
ELSE
   DO THAT;
END IF;


look like this:
IF SOMETHING
DO THIS;
ELSE
DO THAT;
END IF;

Does anyone know how to fix this?

column ddl format a200 word_wrapped

connect username/password@SID

spool &&Object_Name..sql

SELECT DBMS_METADATA.GET_DDL('PROCEDURE',UPPER('&&Object_Name'), UPPER('&&Source_Schema')) || '/' ddl from dual;

SPOOL OFF

It works as-is.
So it has to do with your formatting.
scott@9i > create or replace procedure foobar
  2  as
  3  begin
  4     null;
  5     if something > nothing
  6             then 
  7                     dbms_output.put_line('Hello World!');
  8     end if;
  9  end;
 10  /

scott@9i > SELECT DBMS_METADATA.GET_DDL ('PROCEDURE','FOOBAR')||';' as xxx from dual;

  CREATE OR REPLACE PROCEDURE "SCOTT"."FOOBAR"

        if something > nothing
                then
                        dbms_output.put_line('Hello World!');
        end if;
end;
 ;
