listing package
by alwin on Mon 6th Jun 2005 22:20 UTC

with the listing package wich can include java/c/sql/whatever files and apply syntax highlighting and line numbering to it. so when a make my assignments in java i can include the files and get it automaticly formatted. when i discovered this i knew i would never use another kind of typesetter for writing documents.

when doing projects with other students they always want to use word and we always end op fixing the formatting (i have lots of horror stories about this ;) ). my school should teach latex and give the students a choice between latex or word. people only use word because it's the only thing they know, not because it's the best tool around.
