In the table below, 1{print} is missing its closing backtick. The preview handles this well by having it render as plain text instead of code but when posted, the table fails completely.

To test, click edit. Preview will be well rendered:

| Operator | Meaning | | ----------- | --------------------------------------------------- | | {} | awk operation/expression/code | | count | a random variable | | +=1 | +1 increment | | END or true contition | code to run... at the END or on true condition. awk is all about true{expr} like 1{print} | | count/NR| simple arithmetic division | |NR| number of the current/last line:Number of R`ecords |

    I suggest to use ezgif.com to convert video to GIF and upload as image directly into question body. Commented Apr 19, 2023 at 14:02
  • 'Failed to upload image; an error occurred on the server' size of gif is 20k Commented Apr 19, 2023 at 14:30
  • 20k? imgur for SE support the image less 2Mb. Commented Apr 19, 2023 at 14:32

    Your file is 25.28MiB, you need to reduce the size more than 10 time to fit into 2MiB. First of all I think it's better to crop the area to eliminate not relevant part of grabbed screen. Commented Apr 19, 2023 at 14:35

    licecap's a really good tool on windows and OS X for video screenshots. Its not perfect but I loaded your video into a quarter of a 1080p and captured it, size is a lot better. Commented Apr 19, 2023 at 14:56
  • @JourneymanGeek is licecap able to convert video from file? O_o Commented Apr 19, 2023 at 14:58

    @αλεχολυτ actually, I really can't see any added value in showing it either as video or a gif. Reproducing is as easy here as clicking the edit link and seeing the preview. Commented Apr 19, 2023 at 14:58

    @ShadowTheSpringWizard main value that the post become not dependent on external resources. Without animation you won't be able to understand the issue when it will be fixed. Commented Apr 19, 2023 at 15:00

    @JourneymanGeek There is zero reason for gif here. It's just annoying noise. (Like almost everywhere.) You have worsened the post.
