I am using the syntaxhighlighter plugin, which is nice, but creates a horizontal scroll bar if the code is too "broad".

I am thus looking for a theme with for wordpress which has much space in the horizontal direction (no sidebar, maybe). Secondary a "codish" look would be nice.

I have looked at http://theme.wordpress.com/ but not found the right search phrase to get what I want. Any suggestion?

Syntaxhighlighter is by far the best plug-in, so it's just a matter of editing the CSS that comes with it (as that will give you total control). The horizontal scroll doesn't seem great at first either, however your readers will appreciate that important code structure doesn't get the "word wrap" treatment (thus, breaking everything).

I agree, any theme with syntax highlighter could be a programmer blog ;) –  Jakub Słaby Jan 8 '12 at 20:14
Noel, could you please link to the plugin? Is this the one? –  brasofilo Jul 2 '12 at 13:30
