Showing Code

Math is done in MediaWiki with an extension that looks like <math>expr</math>. You don't seem to have Texvc installed so this isn't working...probably would be easy to compile into your setup.

I was looking around to see if anyone had implemented an extension which would help with code in the same way, since it's lame to put it in <pre>expr</pre>. I found one syntax hi-liter. It does not seem to support C++ and it has a "quirk" that you have to put the language in (e.g. <code><perl/>expr</code>)

The extension is open source so I guess one could adapt it. Interestingly there seem to be some wikis that are superior out of the box, including a commercial one called "Confluence". Metaeducation 10:19, 16 January 2006 (Pacific Standard Time)
