That code published on Emacs StackExchange is compatible to Emacs.

As you have referenced it below, code published on Stack Exchange is
under Creative Commons BY-SA 4.0., so your reference is here:

This is a copyleft free license that is good for artistic and
entertainment works, and educational works. Like all CC licenses, it
should not be used on software.

CC BY-SA 4.0 is one-way compatible with the GNU GPL version 3: this
means you may license your modified versions of CC BY-SA 4.0 materials
under GNU GPL version 3, but you may not relicense GPL 3 licensed
works under CC BY-SA 4.0.

Because Creative Commons lists only version 3 of the GNU GPL on its
compatible licenses list, it means that you can not license your
adapted CC BY-SA works under the terms of “GNU GPL version 3, or (at
your option) any later version.” However, Section 14 of the GNU GPL
version 3 allows licensors to specify a proxy to determine whether
future versions of the GNU GPL can be used. Therefore, if someone
adapts a CC BY-SA 4.0 work and incorporates it into a GNU GPL version
3 licensed project, they can specify Creative Commons as their proxy
(via so that if and
when Creative Commons determines that a future version of the GNU GPL
is a compatible license, the adapted and combined work could be used
under that later version of the GNU GPL.
