Location on CTAN: /macros/latex/contrib/listings
Summary description: Typeset source code listings using LaTeX.
License type: lppl

Announcement text given by the package's contributor:
Typeset programs (programming code) within LaTeX. The source code is read 
directly by TeX. Keywords, comments and strings can be typeset using 
different styles (default is bold for keywords, italic for comments and 
no special style for strings). Includes support for hyperref. To use, 
simply \usepackage{listings}, identify the language with 
\lstset{language=Python}, then employ the \begin{lstlisting} ... 
\end{lstlisting} environment or the \lstinputlisting{filename.py} command.

NOTE: The original author of this package, Carsten Heinz, became inactive 
sometime in late 2004.  Hendri Adriaens took over maintenance of the 
package in accordance with the LPPL's procedure for abandoned packages.  
He then passed the maintainership of the package to Brooks Moses, who had 
volunteered for the position while this procedure was going through.  

This release, version 1.3c, is not yet the long awaited bugfix release, 
as the new maintainer (Brooks Moses) has neither a list of reported bugs 
nor a good test suite to use to check to make sure that the fixes don't 
break other things.  Thus, he asks that users email him reports of any 
outstanding bugs that they are aware of, as well as examples of 
"interesting" uses of listings that should go into the test suite.
