I would rather use a script file:

emacs --batch -q -l script.el

with script.el containing whatever you want, in emacs lisp, something
like:

(dolist (file (file-expand-wildcards "/home/ht/src/*.cxx"))
  (find-file file)
  (mark-whole-buffer)
  (indent-region (point-min) (point-max))
  (save-buffer 0)
  (kill-buffer (current-buffer)))

Pour moi, la grande question n'a jamais été: «Qui suis-je? Où vais-je?» 
comme l'a formulé si adroitement notre ami Pascal, mais plutôt:
