# [Tex/LaTex] insert code keywords inline

codeinline()

What is the command to insert inline code words into the text like this?

I know there are packages for inserting snippets into the code, but I need to insert keywords within the main text. I was wondering if there is a more convenient way to do that.

The package listings provides \lstinline for such short snippets. The advantage of such a package is its awareness of keywords etc.

In principle any formatting can be used for the 'code' -- as long as the syntax does not interfere with TeX/LaTeX syntax all is well.

The package xparse allows for verbatim arguments, it can be used as well.

\documentclass{article}

\usepackage{xcolor}
\usepackage{listings}

\usepackage{xparse}

\NewDocumentCommand{\codeword}{v}{%
\texttt{\textcolor{blue}{#1}}%
}

\lstset{language=C,keywordstyle={\bfseries \color{blue}}}

\begin{document}

\lstinline{for} or \lstinline{while} or \lstinline{main}

\codeword{Here} you \codeword{see} an \codeword{example} of \codeword{an} inline \codeword{code}

\end{document}
