This is a sandbox post for experimenting with SE features, similar to the Formatting Sandbox on Meta Stack Exchange.

make unix | more > /usr/friendly

should give this friendly message:

make: *** No rule to make target 'unix'. Stop.

Will this put everything below this in a <code> tag on the mobile site (and maybe also on the desktop site on some computers / browsers)?

I think it does.

date; cd; touch; strip; finger; mount; fsck; more; yes; unmount; sleep

date; cd; touch; strip; finger; mount; fsck; more; yes; unmount; sleep

date; cd; touch; strip; finger; mount; fsck; more; yes; unmount; sleep
date; cd; touch; strip; finger; mount; fsck; more; yes; unmount; sleep

Dodge this:

date; cd; touch; strip; finger; mount; fsck; more; yes; unmount; sleep

and that:

date; cd; touch; strip; finger; mount; fsck; more; yes; unmount; sleep

Just wondering why [question:646] or [answer:646#683] are not hyperlinkified.

An other test: link to this anwser (failed)

Links to the question: Experimentation Sandbox or this. Ok, these ones work.

  • There is a magic link system for comments, but it only works in comments and doesn't include question/answers. If you know the ID you can just link to unix.stackexchange.com/q/646 – Michael Mrozek Aug 12 '11 at 22:37

    I knew about those. The ones I wish for would display the current title of the question (plus the name of the author for answers), and update with future edits. – Stéphane Gimenez Aug 12 '11 at 22:42
  • A link to a question will get turned into the title of the question; I'm not sure about answers. They don't update though, it would be too much load on the servers to try and keep track of all that – Michael Mrozek Aug 12 '11 at 22:53
  • Testing answers links as [text](#726): here is a link to [my own answer](#726) (maybe). – Stéphane Gimenez Aug 12 '11 at 23:12
  • Argh, failed :/ – Stéphane Gimenez Aug 12 '11 at 23:13
  • Ah, apparently not in comments. Example answer (source) – Michael Mrozek Aug 12 '11 at 23:16
  • link to this question: meta.unix.stackexchange.com/questions/646/… – Stéphane Gimenez Aug 12 '11 at 23:27

Hmm, a and b separated by 5 spaces gives a b.

Gee, bug? (Same with any number of spaces)
