Template talk:Commands

Unfortunately, there is no way, at least that I could find, to have newlines between each command and not have a newline on the last command with this looping command. To make things look symetrical, I have added a newline at the top and spaces in front of the command. I dislike this extra white space, but the alternative is to have an empty line only at the bottom, making it look awkward. I believe the special characters in previous versions was a result of the same problem. This version simply replaced the special characters with the <nowiki> tags with the return line or space added using normal characters to make it a little clearer what was being done

Template does not render second (or later?) lines if they contain '='. Example from Autotools page:

|make install --prefix=$HOME/SOFTWARE
  [name@server ~]$ mkdir $HOME/SOFTWARE

Solution is that = must be enclosed in double braces,
