What is pastebay?

pastebay is here to help you collaborate on debugging code snippets. If you're not familiar with the idea, most people use it like this:

How can I view the differences between two posts?

When you view a post, you have the opportunity of editing the text - this creates a new post, but when you view it, you'll be given a 'diff' link which allows you to compare the changes between the old and the new version

This is a powerful feature, great for seeing exactly what lines someone changed

How can I delete a post?

If you clicked the "remember me" checkbox when posting, you will be able to delete post from the same computer you posted from - simply view the post and click the "delete post" link.

In other cases, contact us and we will delete it for you

What's a private pastebay and how do I get one?

You get a private pastebay simply by thinking up a domain name no-one else is using, e.g. http://private.pastebay.com or http://this-is-my.pastebay.com. Posts made into a subdomain only show up on that domain, making it easy for you to collaborate without the 'noise' of the regular service at http://pastebay.com

All you need to do is change the web address in your browser to access a private pastebay, or you can simply enter the domain you'd like below.

Go to http://.pastebay.com

Please note that there is no password protection - subdomains are accessible to anyone who knows the domain name you've chosen, but we do not publish a list of domains used.

Subdomains for your language...

If a subdomain matches a language name, the required syntax highlighting is selected for you, so ruby.pastebay.com will preselect Ruby automatically.

Plain Text, ActionScript, Ada, Apache Log File, AppleScript, ASM (NASM based), ASP, Bash, C, C for Macs, CAD DCL, CAD Lisp, C++, C#, ColdFusion, CSS, D, Delphi, Diff, DOS, Eiffel, Fortran, FreeBasic, Game Maker, HTML, INI file, Java, Javascript, Lisp, Lua, MatLab, MPASM, MySQL, NullSoft Installer, Objective C, OCaml, Openoffice.org BASIC, Oracle 8, Pascal, Perl, PHP, Python, QBasic/QuickBASIC, Robots, Ruby, Scheme, Smarty, SQL, TCL, VisualBasic, VB.NET, VisualFoxPro, XML
