Super User is a question and answer site for computer enthusiasts and power users. It's 100% free, no registration required.

I would like to make a multi-page online tutorial that includes a lot of snippets of C++ code. I'm looking for something like the preview of source code provided by the programming-related StackExchange sites. What wiki-engine and associated editor is designed for this type of programming-centered content?

I would go with a WordPress install and a plugin to facilitate the code highlighting. There are many options for that. Here's a rundown of some of them: http://blog.templatemonster.com/2011/04/15/wordpress-plugins-code-snippets-displaying/

WikiMatrix is awesome for comparing wikis. As for a Stack Exchange like feel, you're probably not going to see a slick live preview, or at least I haven't found one that will do this. It may be possible to set it up yourself. This question might help you, and this is what Stack Exchange uses.

I'd love to see what you end up with by the way. I'd appreciate a ping when you've got something to show off. :) –  Tanner Jan 17 '13 at 15:07
