Date: May 10, 2006 8:03:01 AM CEST
A package update has been installed at tug.ctan.org and it should soon be at your favorite mirror. Thank you, Jim Hefferon St Michael's College ====================================================================== The following information was provided by the package's contributor. Name of contribution: listings Author's name: Brooks Moses Location on CTAN: /macros/latex/contrib/listings Summary description: Typeset source code listings using LaTeX. License type: lppl Announcement text given by the package's contributor:
Typeset programs (programming code) within LaTeX. The source code is read directly by TeX. Keywords, comments and strings can be typeset using different styles (default is bold for keywords, italic for comments and no special style for strings). Includes support for hyperref. To use, simply \usepackage{listings}, identify the language with \lstset{language=Python}, then employ the \begin{lstlisting} ... \end{lstlisting} environment or the \lstinputlisting{filename.py} command. NOTE: The original author of this package, Carsten Heinz, became inactive sometime in late 2004. Hendri Adriaens took over maintenance of the package in accordance with the LPPL's procedure for abandoned package's. He then passed the maintainership of the package to Brooks Moses, who had volunteered for the position while this procedure was going through. This release, version 1.3c, is not yet the long awaited bugfix release, as the new maintainer (Brooks Moses) has neither a list of reported bugs nor a good test suite to use to check to make sure that the fixes don't break other things. Thus, he asks that users email him reports of any outstanding bugs that they are aware of, as well as examples of "interesting" uses of listings that should go into the test suite. Thanks!

listings – Typeset source code listings using

The package enables the user to typeset programs (programming code) within ; the source code is read directly by —no front-end processor is needed. Keywords, comments and strings can be typeset using different styles (default is bold for keywords, italic for comments and no special style for strings). Support for hyperref is provided.

To use, \usepackage{listings}, identify the language of the object to typeset, using a construct like: \lstset{language=Python}, then use environment lstlisting for inline code. External files may be formatted using \lstinputlisting to process a given file in the form appropriate for the current language. Short (in-line) listings are also available, using either \lstinline|...| or |...| (after defining the | token with the \lstMakeShortInline command).
