Not necessarily, but that's where I'm starting, it is is going to be similar to the mozilla developer network. A friendly, wiki-based method of education about those languages and tools with example source, example output, best practices, use cases, etc. Whereas the existing documentation serves a purpose a lot closer to reading the Specifications of the C language than "teaching it". Only serving to be helpful to seasoned developers, making the C Language (and other GCC Languages) a lot scarier/overwhelming to learn. Microsoft sort of provides this for the C language with their MSDN C documentation, and this is obviously going to be in direct competition with that (IMHO showing that community-powered open source wiki documentation prevails over their proprietary/closed alternative.)

Also, the extension is very small in terms of hard drive usage, and resource usage, and will have nearly no effect on Libreplanet. It will just take a minute or two for a sysadmin to paste it into the extensions folder and *boom*.

In the worst case scenario you can link to some free service that provides pastebin with syntax highlighting.

Are you basically porting the texinfo docs for libc to wiki format?

I'm currently trying to get a project called "GNU Developer Network" going, which will provided online wiki-based documentation for GNU Development tools, and development for GNU systems. This includes documenting GCC and the GNU libc. The first task is to document all the functions in GNU libc, with examples, best practices, etc. To do this, I need a fast, clean, and concise way to write code examples. It would be of great help if you could install the code ( for mediawiki. So I could just do "<source lang="c"></source>". This would be really great! Thanks! (sent this to both libreplanet-dev and libreplanet-discuss since I wasn't sure where this should go)
