[Mediawiki-l] How to display wiki formatting as text

I'm trying to write a wiki page that will show the contents of a text 
file containing wiki code.  I need it to display the raw text without 
any changes.  I've tried using <nowiki>, but that doesn't work. <pre> 
only works until it sees the </pre> contained in the text file that I'm 
trying to post.

The file is a bash script that builds a text file to be injected into a 
locally hosted mediawiki install.  I'm trying to document the script 
within the wiki itself.  How can I tell mediawiki to display this text 
as text, ignore all wiki and html markup?
