I want to attach some LaTeX files to a post on Stack Overflow. What is the best way to do this?

I suggest dropbox.com or yousendit.com. – Adam Monsen Jun 5 '13 at 0:09

Use a file upload service like SkyDrive and post the link on the page like so:

<a href="http://file">file</a>

I have problems with skydrive links, some users complain they can't download them. Their browser sees the skydrive URL ending in.zip and tries to download the HTML and save it as a zip. – Warren in Toronto Apr 20 '11 at 15:41

Host them somewhere else and post a link. StackOverflow does not provide file hosting services.

@GeorgeEdison ... And what is the reason? – Mukul Goel Nov 5 '12 at 8:24

LaTeX is just code, so if you have a question about how to do something in LaTeX, just include a snippet like you would any other piece of code.

(Hint: indent it by four spaces, or select it and click the 'binary' icon in the toolbar of the edit window.)
