	 | SPVERBATIM: Verbatim text with breakable spaces |
	 |	By Scott Pakin, scott+spverb@pakin.org	   |


LaTeX's \verb macro treats its argument as an unbreakable unit of
text.  This can lead to poor typesetting, especially when the argument
is long.  The spverbatim package provides an \spverb macro that is
analogous to \verb and an spverbatim environment that is analogous to
verbatim with the difference being that \spverb and spverbatim allow
LaTeX to break lines at space characters.


There's nothing special about building spverbatim:

    latex spverbatim.ins     <== Generate spverbatim.sty

spver­ba­tim – Al­low line breaks within \verb and ver­ba­tim out­put

's \verb macro treats its ar­gu­ment as an un­break­able unit of text. This can lead to poor type­set­ting, es­pe­cially when the ar­gu­ment is long. The spver­ba­tim pack­age pro­vides an \spverb macro that is anal­o­gous to \verb and an spver­ba­tim en­vi­ron­ment that is anal­o­gous to ver­ba­tim with the dif­fer­ence be­ing that \spverb and spver­ba­tim al­low to break lines at space char­ac­ters.
