Hello everyone! If you are a regular user of Freescale Community (Hurray! :smileygrin:) you might have seen many posts with very useful code. Maybe you have seen them just posted this way: // C++ example #include <iostream> using namespace std; int main () {   cout << "Hello World!" ;   return 0; } Pretty nice when we copy-paste and it comes out with the compiler colors right? But what if we run into the same code posted this way: //C++ example #include <iostream> using namespace std; int main() { cout<<"Hello world!"; return 0; } Not so pretty, and when it is a very large piece of code it might get really confusing. Best case scenario, you'll find the code as it follows: //C++ example #include <iostream> using namespace std; int main() { cout<<"Hello World!"; return 0; } And why is that a "best case scenario" you wonder? Well, among the tools we can find when creating posts, documents or any content within Community, there are some we rarely use that would improve the quality of our posting by optimizing space, organizing our ideas and making it easier and clearer for those who read us. Have never used this code feature? Check it out! You'll find a list box from which you'll be able to choose several types of code. I chose the C++ option as an example. The next thing you'll get will be a set of numbered rows that will recognize the syntax and commands according to the code you're posting in. Now that you know of it you won't have a post made without it, will you?

The NXP Community on NXP.com is moving to a new platform (powered by Khoros). The discontinuation of our existing platform initiated this change. A seamless transition of our content, spaces, and files is the project team’s first priority. Accounts will not be affected; you will be able to use the same URLs and expect the same support from the NXP team. What You Need to Know Some things will change: The layout will be updated. It may take a little time to orientate to the new interface but by design, it’s meant to be easy to navigate. Usernames with dots will be automatically changed to underscores. Example: 2020 to user_2020 The option to display the real name will be disabled at launch. All users will be identified by their community usernames. Example: Real name: John Smith Username: johnSmith This feature will be restored later in the year. If you want to change your username, please contact support@nxp.com The following elements will not be migrated. If you want to keep this content, create a backup: Private messages Drafts Pending group invitations Completing the migration will result in some service interruption, but we have arranged to minimize this to the greatest extent possible: On Friday, August 28 th at 4 PM US CDT the community will be set as Read-only, meaning that new content will not be allowed. On Monday, August 31 st , we expect the migration to be completed. Thank you for supporting the NXP Community!
