I many times tried that four space(bar)s before and after the code. But I never succeed. Can one say how to put the code in the comments.

This question came from our site for professional and enthusiast programmers.

Here I am typing the code with spacebars. And see how it prints #include<iostream> – prabhakaran Jun 4 '10 at 2:47
Use backticks, just like you do in the post body. – James McNellis Jun 4 '10 at 2:48
This is in backticks to test James's theory This is not in backticks – Oddthinking Jun 4 '10 at 3:01

Within comments you can use backticks (`) which on most keyboards is on the same key as the tilde (~)

you can use this in both posts and comments by wrapping the code section in backticks.
