Does anyone know a way to keep the forum from mangling code?

You post a piece of code and it comes out like mush with all the blanks
compressed. Virtually unreadable.

This (Period added to keep from screwing up):

....Exec Sql Open C1;
....If SqlState <> cSqlStateOk;
......ERRH_Throw('CPF9898' :
........................CPFMessageFileName :
........................'Open of Cursor C1 failed');

Becomes this:

Exec Sql Open C1;
If SqlState <> cSqlStateOk;
ERRH_Throw('CPF9898' :
cCPFMessageFileName :
'Open of Cursor C1 failed');

Why does the forum do this?
