Syntax Highlighting. Converting C# (et al) to HTML.

comments edit

I’ve probably read a hundred or so posts of people looking for a way to syntax highlight source code listings in HTML. Maybe I’m the last to discover this site, but http://www.manoli.net/csharpformat/ is the answer for me so far. Just cut and paste some C#, VB, html/xml/aspx code int the text box and click "format my code" and voila! You get some clean HTML displaying nicely formatted code.

The tool allows you to optionally format the code with alternating line colors and line numbers if you so desire.

public class ThisIsSoCool
{
  ///      /// This is seriously neat.      ///      
  public void YouShouldTryThis()
  {}
}

Let’s try it with line numbers.

``

   1:  public class ThisIsAlsoCool

   2:  {

   3:    /// 

   4:    /// Look at me ma! I’m using line numbers

   5:    /// 

   6:    public void YouShouldTryThis()

   7:    {}

   8:  }
