Line numbers are not part of the code so there's nothing to copy. Just copy your selection and add the line numbers to the copy but realize that it won't compile any longer.

I assume you are asking how to post source code in this forum.

Look here. A short-cut technique is to paste the lines of code (with no line numbers), select the lines of code, and then press the # button at the top of the post-entry window.

Notice that line numbering in your post always starts from 1, so line numbers in your post are typically different than line numbers in your actual source code. Compiler messages typically indicate the relevant line number. It is very helpful if you somehow indicate which line in your post corresponds to the line indicated in the message. You can use the Preview button to see what line numbers will be seen by people reading your post.
