    That link won't help you here on Ask Ubuntu but in Ubuntu forums. If you want help with formating in Ask Ubuntu check the link in Oli's answer. – Braiam Nov 16 '13 at 12:25

A few answers, you can take your pick from:

tldr For blocks of code, prepend the line with four spaces, for shorter blocks, wrap in `` (backticks).
