How can I include a source file with the listings package and highlight specific lines (coloured text or coloured background will do)?

Have a look to this answer from highlight lines in listings. – Claudio Fiandrino Sep 5 '12 at 8:52
Thanks, I missed it. I'm voting to close my question as an exact duplicate. – Anthony Labarre Sep 5 '12 at 9:38

If you know which words or sentences you want to highlight, you can use the emph and emphstyle of the command lstset. This is done by hand and not really a trick but it should work.

\usepackage{listings}
\lstset{
language=bash,% or another depending of your input
emph={[1] word with style 1},
emphstyle=[1]\color{teal},
emph={[2] word with style 2},
emphstyle=[2]\color{violet}\bfseries\slshape,
}

Thanks, but not good enough for me, the terms I would highlight also appear elsewhere in the source code and I really need a single line to be highlighted. – Anthony Labarre Sep 5 '12 at 8:54
