11. How can I get source code listings nicely printed?


Sorry, you are on your own, more or less.

I know that there are third-party LaTeX packages that are tailored towards formatting and displaying of source code listings in LaTeX documents. I did not have the time to investigate these packages for my own purposes, and so I was stuck with something really basic I wrote myself. Just in case that this quick 'n dirty hack might be all you need, too, I include it here.

Example usage

In the preamble, or in an appropriate include file:



In the manuscript:

  double a[n], b[n], c[n];

  for (i = 0; i < n; i++)
      c[i] = a[i] + b[i];

Result, before

Result, after
