Source Code Highlighting[edit]

I messed around with the sample code and came up with some basic highlighting that I thought made the code easier to read. This is a sample of what I would be changing the sample code to:

#include <openssl/obj_mac.h>
#include <openssl/ec.h>

/* Other things up here... */

EC_GROUP *curve;
 
if(NULL == (curve = EC_GROUP_new_by_curve_name(NID_secp224r1)))
    handleErrors();

I have no strong feelings towards the specific colors, I just picked something I thought was simple and clean. By all means if you have a suggestion regarding the theme I'm all ears. As I said, the point of this change is to make the code easier to read, and since I know theme selection and taste are pretty arbitrary and some people might prefer the code as it is, I thought it best to leave the sample code on live as it was for now.

I believe mediawiki has colorizers to do that; see Syntax highlighting extensions. Maybe you can ping Richard and ask him to install one.
If there is a pain point, it will likely be CentOS. Red Hat provides ancient software (even with SCL enabled) so OpenSSL mediawiki software is old. You may have a hard time finding an acceptable extension because mediawiki is too old.

I was wondering about that, actually. I did see there were extensions for this, but I wasn't sure whom to ask so I was about to send Matt an email to ask if he could point me in the
right direction. I'll send Richard an email and see what he says. Thanks for the heads up.
