# Testing Online Code Syntax Highlighters for Blogs (5): Embedding Makefiles to a Web Page

Note: This post won’t make sense here. Refer to the original post.

In my previous post titled Fast Compilation and Execution of Source Code, I included a makefile. After I’ve been familiar with SyntaxHighlighter, I changed the code of the makefile so that the new tool is used. However, as I’ve written in my earlier post, SyntaxHighlighter has no makefile support, while highlight.js and google-code-prettify have that feature.123

I think, therefore I am.

In order to be sure about their claims, I’ve done a test and the results are as follow.

## highlight.js:

Maybe my makefile is too simple that it lacks some typical features for the automatic language recognition of highlight.js. Let’s see the sample code copied from the official demo.

## google-code-prettify

Let’s see a real one.

Unluckily, I can’t figure out the way to include a tab, instead of whitespaces, for makefiles. Anyways, one who use makefiles will know that after running make on the first day.
