[erix]Anyone Tex/Lyx knowledgable?
[erix]I am using LyX and want to display code block in something like Courier (or Typewriter)
[erix]But rhe produced text as produced in (for instance) pdf displays these curious double-quotes that are different when opening doublequotes or closing double-quotes
[erix](I want it to make it easy to copy & paste from the document, and this quoting-stuff fucks it up)
[erix]So: looks quite nice, but the copy-paste is kaputt
[choroba]How do you format the code block?
[choroba]I don't know Lyx much, but it should support verbatim
[erix]I've just chosen the 'Typewriter' 'Text style'
[Corion]\verbatim ?
[erix]I'll look up verbatim; one can insert literal TeX code so perhaps that will work
[Corion]erix: Try it using a \begin{verbatim} section
[Corion]\begin{verbatim} ... \end{verbatim} - it's mostly like <pre> tags
[choroba]There might be some fancy "code" packages, but I usually just used the verbatim env when inserting code.
[aitap]The problem could be in the mapping from Computer Modern font to Unicode code points in the PDF file: LaTeX faithfully represents the quotes, but then they are mapped to U+2018 instead of '. Perhaps the could help.
[erix]the verbatim trick worked nicely, thanks all!
[erix]and the CTAN package might be a good idea too (to get the Typewriter quoting 'working')
[marto]good afternoon all
[choroba]Hi marto!
[erix]buona serata
