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

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.

language=bash,% or another depending of your input
emph={[1] word with style 1},
emph={[2] word with style 2},

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
