StackOverflow currently does not support syntax highlighting for PowerShell. Please add support for this in a future revision.

    That question is also marked as a duplicate, but the supposed "duplicate" doesn't actually address the issue. Commented Dec 30, 2013 at 13:27
  • @TrevorSullivan: I liked you to the same question, asked before; "Please add Powershell syntax highlighting". I did vote to reopen that one in the past (because additional options now exist for Stack Exchange to update their definitions from the highlighting project). But the canonical post to normally link to is what Antony linked to; Stack Overflow uses a third-party OSS project, when that project supports Powershell, so will Stack Overflow.

Based on the explanation on Google Code Prettify there is already raised an issue including a sample on july, 10th, 2013.

You seem to be able to 'star' that issue, until now 3 people have done that... You can't vote on issues in Github so no idea how many users want this.

  • Cool, thanks for the information. For reference, the issue # is 295. Commented Dec 30, 2013 at 13:34
