# Listings: spacing between linerange and numbering [closed]

This is a combination of hacks, and only of interest for those who want hacks down to the detail.

It is actually a two part question. I was going through some listings setups and hacks: Firstly Listings line numbers that match the linerange specification, secondly Styling a lstlisting caption using caption package and Visual separation when using linerange in listings. Which can provide me with: https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/271521/Stackoverflow%20Question/StackTex/Tex.pdf

With the first hack there seem to be a problem that it does not increment when empty lines is supplied. It would be cool if someone could figure it out. Another way have solved this was to make two different listing of the same file but since I want the same caption and reference to the listing this represents a hard hacking.

Furthermore I wanted to get some indication of the linerange, like the third hack, some \vdots or something. Instead of making two distinct listings. Any idears?

-backup <filepath> writes a file at destination <filepath> with the values of the registers in integers, these can be reprogrammed to the DDS by using -setup <filepath>.

-backuphex <filepath> writes a file at destination <filepath> with the values of the DDS registers in hexidecimals, this cannot be reprogrammed to the DDS using -setup.

-setup <filepath> takes the file at destination <filepath> and programmes this to the DDS-chip. These has to be in integers, see an example by generating an file using the command: -backup <filepath>

-uut is a unit-under-test mode, where everything interpreted from the file, which should be programmed to the DDS is instead printed to the console (can be used with the DDS unconnected).

Besides this the 'labSetup.txt' file has the initial setup of the DDS-chip which is programmed every time.

I don't understand what you want to achieve. Your post actually doesn't ask any question. I suggest you edit your question to make it more self-contained instead of just pointing to other questions. Also, your code seems far from minimal. If you made it more concise, you'd stand a better chance of getting answers. –  Jubobs Feb 27 at 12:20
