I'm not sure if this is a suited topic asking here, but I really need it.

What I've used doesn't catter for my needs.

Thank you.

This question came from our site for professional and enthusiast programmers.

For future reference, this isn't really a "programming question" and would be better asked on superuser.com . The folks there are pretty helpful and that site is a bit more on-topic with what you are asking. –  Robert Cartaino Feb 7 '10 at 3:02

You should be fine with Wordpress as a blogging platform along with WP-Syntax. That provides code syntax highlighting abilities.

The supported languages are listed here:

+1. I've been happy with WordPress and WP-Syntax. The only caveat is that you have to jump through some hoops if you want anonymous commenters to be able to post code containing angle brackets (e.g. HTML, XML, ASP.NET, etc). –  Dave Ward Feb 7 '10 at 3:03
Yep you do unfortunately... that's just the way it is... take a look at the other wordpress esque syntax highlighting plugins - no idea whether they're better, e.g. wordpress.org/extend/plugins/syntaxhighlighter –  Jon Feb 7 '10 at 3:27

See this SO question if you're willing to consider using "blogger" as your platform.
