Code:Select question. (solved)

Post by Wompoo »

I see the above, entered into the top field of a double field box, every code that is posted for the purposed of entering it into Terminal.
Where does this originate from? Does that poster use a special frame and then type it in? Or is there some other explanation.

Sorry for such a basic questiom!

I think it's just a convenient way to differentiate between terminal input/output and the comments in the post.

You can copy terminal input/output and then click the code button in the editor when you are making your post and then paste the code between the brackets and wil appear in a code select box when you submit your post.
