It sounds like you don't really want verbatim (which means produce the output, erm, verbatim). What do you really want? –  TH. Apr 21 '11 at 5:10
I want to include some code. For that I want to use the verbatim mode so that I dont have to do all the indentation, etc. And in that code, there are some symbols. What can I do? –  n1kh1lp Apr 21 '11 at 5:11

codes={\catcode‘$=3\catcode‘^=7}] x=1/sqrt(z**2) !$\frac{1}{\sqrt{z^2}}$\end{Verbatim} It is easier to use listings package, see manual "4.14 Escaping to LaTeX". Example: \begin{lstlisting}[mathescape] // calculate$a_{ij}a_{ij} = a_{jj}/a_{ij}\$;
