# Reduce vertical space at the bottom of a 'ruled' 'newfloat'

I have defined a custom float using the newfloat command from the float package. My custom float uses the ruled style, defined in the same package. This is a minimal example of what I'm doing:

\documentclass{article}

\usepackage{float}

\floatstyle{ruled}
\newfloat{Foo}{thp}{lop}
\floatname{Foo}{Foobar}

\begin{document}

\begin{Foo}
\begin{verbatim}
public void foo(int bar) {
foo();
bar();
}
\end{verbatim}
\caption{An example of a foobar program}
\end{Foo}

\end{document}


What I don't like, is the vertical space that lies between the last line of the contents and the bottom rule of the float. Is there a way to reduce that space?

You can redefine the internal \fs@ruled macro to add a negative vertical skip before the bottom rule; add the following lines to the preamble of your document (change -0.7\baselineskip according to your needs):
\makeatletter
