Talk:Hitchhikers guide to Haskell
Code is most easily specified by indenting it by a space in the wiki source:
-- This is some code. sq x = x*x
If two spaces are used to indent, then the code is visually indented:
-- Indented code. sq x = x*x
However, if two spaces are used, then cutting and pasting the code sample will insert a spurious space that breaks the 2D Haskell layout. Unless there is a way of indenting code visually while preserving the cut an paste layout properties, it seems that one should only use a single space to indent code.
(P.S. I am really enjoying this article! It provides a very nice practical introduction to Haskell. Mforbes 09:54, 17 April 2006 (UTC))
