Inserting C++ code (as reference) into LyX

    Hey there,

    I'm writing a report using LyX and I'd like to insert a couple of lines of C++ code (from Dev-C++) into an Appendix, just for reference.

    I've tried exporting the C++ to HTML and then converting the HTML to a jpeg file and then insert it into the LyX document but it's very small and looks quite messy.

    Does anyone know of another way to do this?

    Can't you just format it with TT font for fixed space? Or is there another type of formatting you want to preserve?

    eta: the listings package looks like what you want in LaTeX; you should be able to use it with ERT in LyX.

    Actually, I just checked and LyX incorporates the listings package. Under the Insert menu, you'll find "Program Listing".

    Perhaps, I'm missing something here but surely verbatim is the environment to use?(Tag it if needs be.)

    The "listings" package is aware of language syntax and marks up source code quite nicely.

    I'll have me my humble pie now. . .:o
    (Didn't cop the listings bit.)
