    Can't post my program

    Hi guys,
    New to the forum. Trying to post a program to receive so input/help, but I keep receiving an error asking me to surround my source code with code tags... unfortunately I have done that, ["code"] was placed before my first include file, and ["/code"] after my last function definition. Still receiving the error, and I tried emailing the webmaster, but again I am new and seem to not have that kind of access yet. Any help would be appreciated. (P.S. no curly braces are anywhere in the mentioned post).

    Edit: Got it to work, sorry for the inconvenience.

    I just put those so it wouldn't consider my text between the code tags as code

    Pro Tip: You can "fake" formatting tags as literal text by placing a blank formatting tag in the middle of the outer tag. For example to write:

    [CODE] [/CODE]

    You can simple insert a bold tag in the middle of the word "CODE" such as:

    [CO[B][/B]DE] [/CO[B][/B]DE]

    Or use the [noparse][/noparse] tags

    [code][/code]

    Real pro tip: use [noparse][/noparse] when you don't want the bbcode tags to be parsed, e.g., [noparse][code][/code][/noparse] results in [code][/code].

"Finding the smallest program that demonstrates the error" is a powerful debugging tool.

    I... I was testing you.

    *phew*

    Ok, ok, amateur tip then. I guess [noparse][/noparse] has been around for a several years now, but I never bothered changing my ways. Anyway, I guess I should just fess up and accept the fact that you were right and I was testing you... ...
