This upquote.sty LaTeX package changes the glyphs used by the \verb
and \verb* macros and the "verbatim" and "verbatim*" environments for
ASCII characters 27 and 60 to the "upright quotation mark" and "grave
accent" ones required by Unicode, ISO 646, ISO 10646, and many other
character set standards. This is particularly useful for typesetting
software source code.

upquote – Show "realistic" quotes in verbatim

Typewriter-style fonts are best for program listings, but Computer Modern Typewriter prints ` and ' as bent opening and closing single quotes. Other fonts, and most programming languages, print ` as a grave accent and ' upright; ' is used both to open and to close quoted strings.

The package switches the typewriter font to Computer Modern Typewriter in OT1 encoding, and modifies the behaviour of verbatim, verbatim*, \verb, and \verb* to print in the “` and ' way”. It does thisregardless of other fonts or encodings in use, so long as the package is loaded after the other fonts were.

The package does not affect \tt, \texttt, etc.
