What is Pastebin

The lengh of the source-code has always been a problem at the communication between two programmers. Even small applications fill up several pages of code - while big projects with many functions make it impossible to maintain an overview. That is why Pastebin was developed.
Pastebin saves you code or text reliable and clearly. Furthermore, Pastebin highlights the chosen syntax for many coding languages.
By means of Pastebin, everyone is now capable to show text or code to a wide community without exceeding limits of Forums or Message-Boards. Pastebin also numbers, even further, text lines so discussing about a piece of code is way easier and clearer.
Summarized, Pastebin is a service which is primarily oriented for programmers, which want to share source-code and don't want to miss the clarity and syntaxhighlighting of a normal compiler.

But also for everyone who wants to share text, chat-logs or error-logs, Pastebin is a big help.
