Remove Syntax Highlighting?[edit]

As noticed by, the source code listed is not quite C, as promised to the syntax highlighter. It's unlikely the highlighter will ever support something like lang="noweb#c", so it may be best to just use "<pre>" or custom formatting instead. But the former looks plain and the latter is labor intensive... — Preceding unsigned comment added by Daggerbox (talkcontribs) 02:20, 7 January 2011 (UTC)

Who uses literate programming?[edit]

The article would be improved if it contained a list of software programs that have been written in a literate programming style. From what I gather, this is still a small number, so a list would not be out of place. I know of TeX (which was even published as a book TeX: The Program) and METAFONT by Knuth, and I've heard about Axiom, but are there any ("big") programs or software projects written in literate programming?

Good question. I glanced at the official discussion group for Literate Programming, which is now a Google Group. These discussions might be useful to read, in order to gain further insight regarding your question, and corresponding inclusion in the article, What is the future of literate programming? (July 2011) and Is Literate Programming useful? (March 2011). Note that comp.programming.literate has been active through October 2012. --FeralOink (talk) 15:14, 1 January 2013 (UTC)

Removed tagging.[edit]

Nothing here to make clear what action to take in nearly a year so removed. Please replace if you can give specfics. (talk) 15:21, 6 May 2012 (UTC)

EHC/ UHC and Web68 update[edit]

I updated external references but tried to include external links in my revision comment. Guess what: It didn't work!

This is what my edit was: I revised URLs due to the transition of EHC content to UHC per the UHC Wiki Project News, (Sept 2010). I also removed red link/ non-existent wikilinks. Also, I updated and cited properly, the Web68 reference. --FeralOink (talk) 14:41, 1 January 2013 (UTC)
