Another option is to use some (probably javascript-based) library that displays the code readable but also makes it easy to copy it. (I tried to avoid this as to the best of my knowledge the documentation is expected to be pure html).

For those using metashell, using the getting started guide is also somewhat complicated by the `...>` shell continuation prompt in the code quotations.

After a couple of iterations, I found a decent workaround, which is to open the markdown source libs/metaparse/doc/ in an editor, and remove `...>` from the document with search and replace.

That way I can follow along in a document which does have the backslashes, and copy and paste with ease.
