Is code syntax highlighting turned on for Signal Processing?

The matlab code I posted in response to What are high frequencies and low frequencies in a signal? did not get syntax highlighted. I posted the same code to Code Review here, where it did get highlighted.

We can turn on code syntax highlighting if the community sees a need for it -- do you think many posts would benefit?

It's not a heavy dependency, but it is a minor one, so we'd want to make sure that it will benefit many posts not just a few.

  • $\begingroup$ Seriously, it's disabled? With no explanation of why it's not working when I try umpteen different variations on the comment thinking that it's my fault that it's not working? $\endgroup$ – endolith Jul 20 '13 at 0:08

    $\begingroup$ I wasn't sure whether to ask a new question or to undig this one, but it seems like this feature is still not turned on, and I think it would be more comfortable if not useful for a lot of users. $\endgroup$ – Florent Aug 1 '17 at 23:07

    $\begingroup$ +1 I'd like to see syntax highlighting because many of our users post code. $\endgroup$ – Atul Ingle Oct 19 '17 at 16:55
  • $\begingroup$ @AtulIngle Looking at it now. No idea why I didn't see this activity on Meta when it happened. Apologies for the delayed response. $\endgroup$ – Peter K. Feb 26 '18 at 14:11

  • $\begingroup$ syntax highlighting should be dependent on the language (like C or C++ or something else). it shouldn't be dependent on who is posting the language. $\endgroup$ – robert bristow-johnson Apr 1 '18 at 23:58
  • $\begingroup$ Yes. Please turn Syntax Highlighting for DSP.SE. Code is one of the best way to express algorithm and should be promoted as 1st class citizen here. $\endgroup$ – Royi May 11 '18 at 14:18
  • $\begingroup$ Any progress on that? We really need to promote answers which includes code and hands on examples. $\endgroup$ – Royi Aug 21 '18 at 7:43
