Code extraction from forum posting


When there is a posting with embedded code, how do I extract that code? I searched around for a while, and didn't stumble on the answer, so a pointer, or just a overview would be great. Thanks.

1. Stare intently at your computer display.

2. When you see something you want, drag your mouse's cursor across it. Notice that the selected text become blue.

3. Either press Ctrl+C or activate menu item "Edit ... Copy".

4. Change focus to your favorite text editor/word processor.

5. Either press Ctrl+V or select menu item "Edit ... Paste."

If you have problems with copy and paste selecting the code correctly, hit the quote button first - then c&p from there.
