Entering Code into the Wiki

From SCI Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

For constancy through out the Wiki, whenever entering SCI code into the Wiki, please format any code like this:

<div class="CodeBlockHeader">Code:</div>
<syntaxhighlight lang="sci" class="cs">code goes here.</syntaxhighlight>

Which will result in this:

code goes here.

Syntax highlighting will automatically be added:

 SCI Template Game

 Contains a cycle class for reverse animation. 
(include "sci.sh")
(include "game.sh")
(script REV_SCRIPT)
(use "cycle")
(class Rev of Cycle
		client 0
		caller 0
		cycleDir cdBACKWARD
		cycleCnt 0
		completed 0
	(method (doit)
		(var nCel)
		= nCel (self:nextCel)
		(if(< nCel 0)
			(send client:cel(nCel))
	(method (cycleDone)
		(send client:cel( (send client:lastCel) ) )

You use it in lieu of 'pre' tags. Because it acts like <pre> tags it will preserve the code's formatting without having to add nonbreaking spaces (&nbsp;) or line breaks tags (<br />).

This will make the code much more readable while maintaining/editing it. Other language syntax highlighting can be used if the language is changed in the code in the syntaxhighlight tag. For example, to use C++ highlighting you would change it to:

<syntaxhighlight lang="cpp">

For a list of other language codes, see this table.

As usual, you can experiment with it on the Test page.
