More about: Block code

1. For long blocks of code with blank lines in between, use the extended block directive bc.. and end the block with p. or with another block tag:

bc.. REM QuickBASIC example
INPUT "What is your name: ", UserName$
PRINT "Hello "; UserName$

  INPUT "How many stars do you want: ", NumStars
  Stars$ = STRING$(NumStars, "*")
  PRINT Stars$

    INPUT "Do you want more stars? ", Answer$
  LOOP UNTIL Answer$ <> ""

  Answer$ = LEFT$(Answer$, 1)
LOOP WHILE UCASE$(Answer$) = "Y"

PRINT "Goodbye "; UserName$

2. For inline snippets of code: Wrap with the at @ character:

A line with @code@.

3. NOTE: The pre. tag is similar to the bc. tag, but no <code> ... </code> tags are used within a <pre> block.
