Lets check how code formatting work on this platform.

Following is C++ code

#include <iostream>
using namespace std;
int main()
{
  cout<<"Hello World";
  return 1;
}

Followimg is java code

public class HelloWorld {

    public static void main(String[] args) {
        // Prints "Hello, World" to the terminal window.
        System.out.println("Hello, World");
    }

Last, it is scala code

object HelloWorld {
  def main(args: Array[String]): Unit = {
    println("Hello, world!")
  }
}
