How to share code snippets

This is an example of a code snippet with highlighted syntax

using namespace std;

void printIntro();
void getGuessAndPrintIt();

int main() //entry point of the game
{
    constexpr int MAX_TRIES = 5;
    printIntro();
    for (int count = 1; count <= MAX_TRIES; count++)
    {
        getGuessAndPrintIt();
    }
    return 0;
}

void printIntro() //print the intro text
{
    constexpr int WORD_LENGTH = 9;
    cout << "Welcome to Bulls & Cows, a freaking awesome game by Mornarion.\n";
    cout << "Try to guess the " << WORD_LENGTH;
    cout << " letters isogram that I'm thinking... If you dare!!!\n\n";
    return;
}

void getGuessAndPrintIt() //get a guess from player
{
    string Guess = "";
    cout << "What is your guess?: ";
    getline(cin, Guess);
    //return the guess to the playa
    cout << "Your guess is: " << Guess << endl << endl;
    return;
}

to do this you have to add the code this way without using preformated text

  1. Start your code with " ```c++ " (without the double quotes of course) , this is markdown syntax which points that start of your code snippet and which language you use for syntax highlighting
  2. copy paste your code
  3. close the code snippet with " ``` " (again without double quotes)

be careful its ` not ’ , ` is located in the same key with ~ , at least on my keyboard

Basically the forum supports markdown , its syntax you can find here

Euharisto! :slight_smile:

Testing…


 void PrintIntro()
{
    constexpr int WORD_LENGTH = 9;

    cout << "Welcome to Bulls and Cows, a fun word game.\n";
        cout << "Can you guess the " << WORD_LENGTH << " letter isogram I'm thinking of?\n\n"; 
        return;
}

…it works!

My pleasure
