Formatting

We seem to have one program copied several times which seems wasteful. How about a header with a 'name' of the program, one copy of the source - with line numbers, and then sub-headers with names for each language it works for containing comments on how/what is special to each language. This would be a special format for just for this page though which may cause future problems. --Paddy3118 06:13, 10 February 2011 (UTC)Reply[reply]

There are already colour-coded versions for each language on the original site (e.g. Cobol and Pascal). RC's syntax highlighting doesn't work for most cases so there is IMHO no reason to keep eight copies of the same program. --Andreas Perstinger (talk) 07:37, 16 April 2014 (UTC)Reply[reply]
