    Code-Coloring

    Guys, what about a code-coloring script to the forum?
    This will be very nice for posting source-code, and it's not difficult to build something like that. What you guys think about this idea?

    Hmm, the script could be Client-side or server-side no matter...

    Look an example:
    Code:
    #include <stdio.h>
    #define FOO 10
    
    int main(void)
    {
        char foo; 
        int  foo2;
    
        printf("This is green");
         
       for (foo2 = 0; foo2 <= 10; ++foo2) 
            printf("%d\n",foo2);
            
           return 0; //comment here, return ok 
    
    }

    You mean like the PHP tag?

    PHP Code:
    #include <stdio.h>
    #define FOO 10

    int main(void)
    {
        
    char foo
        
    int  foo2;

        
    printf("This is red");
         
       for (
    foo2 0foo2 <= 10; ++foo2
            
    printf("%d\n",foo2);
            
           return 
    0//comment here, return ok 


    I think that the PHP tag is insanely ugly, though. I want to shoot anyone who uses it.

    I agree, it would really help for readability, although the PHP one doesnt seem too bad to me.

    I dont always use it, but had it setup for Java, and and HTML editor, comes in handy sometimes .

    Eibro, if you need some-help.

    Maybe I can help you. You're building one server-side or user-side?

    Hmm, Once I did a nice code-coloring to DCForum's, in JS and PHP.
