Posting code

I'm wondering how to post code like in this thread in the SPIN icon.

  • Below the text box, click the "Attach a file" link and follow the instructions to upload your code file.

    Another way is to post the code inline, by clicking the "C" icon above the text box, and then copy/pasting your code inside the generated tags.

  • So, I'm assuming I could put a folder here that would include several SPIN programs and maybe a README
  • If you zip the folder, yes.

    Or you could attach multiple files if you feel that would be appropriate. Just click the Attach a file" link for each file. There might be a limit to how many individual files you can attach per post, so if you hit the limit then maybe make a second post. Or zip a bunch of files together :)

    You could also use the "archive" in the Propeller Tool to create a zip file from a Spin program that uses multiple Spin files.
  • OK, I think I have it. I would make a folder on my computer with the SPIN programs and other files in it and then ZIP it, then attach that to the forum post. Right?
    Thanks

  • If all the Spin files are part of one Project, just go to "File">"Archive" in the Propeller Tool. This will create a .zip file with all files in the project. Your "Readme" can be a seperate attachment to the post.

    Yes, that's it. Give it a try !

    @Publison 's suggestion is a good time-saver too, if you are using Propeller Tool to edit your SPIN code.
