What 100% free WordPress theme, is specifically designed for posting code? [i.e. code highlighting, HTML char escaping etc.]?

Is there a .org theme specifically for CODE?

There are NO free themes DESIGNED for posting code in the .org repo. I think “any theme will do” isn’t the best answer. It’s not an answer to the question, but as others here mentioned, there are several plugins available. To which I would add embedding gists from github, which is the best answer I have.

I can’t believe there isn’t a theme in the repo for blogging about code! Anyone want to make one?
