Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 158 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

I submitted a proposal patch to google-code-prettify to highlight C99 types such as int8_t, uint32_t etc. Regardless of what upstream thinks of the patch, I believe this could be a nice addition to the SO syntax highlighter.

Just so people know, SO uses Google Code Prettify to syntax highlight. – Anish Gupta Oct 13 '12 at 11:52

The linked patch was accepted by google-code-prettify, so this should now be fixed. (Assuming SO is using the latest version.)
