[Tex/LaTex] alltt package’s \alltt{} makes a newline


alltt causes a line break (newline). How do i suppress this? I want something to the effect of \verb+HELLO+ in that it does what \begin{verbatim} \end{verbatim} does except doesn't cause the line to break.



 The line will break HERE: \alltt{a}

Package alltt defines an environemnt alltt that uses a list environment internally. Therefore it cannot be used the same way as \verb or \texttt.

The main point of package alltt is the unchanged use of \, { and }. The following macro \textalltt sets verbatim catcodes for its argument except for the three characters.



Verbatim text: \textalltt{Hello \textbf{\textsl{world}}}.
