# Inserting RTL text in verbatim environment

How I can insert Persian text in verbatim environment when using XePersin package ( v11.138, 2012/05/03). Following code dose not work:

\begin{verbatim}

<!DOCTYPE book PUBLIC "-//OASIS//DTD DocBook XML V4.5//EN"
"http://www.oasis-open.org/docbook/xml/4.5/docbookx.dtd">
<book>
<bookinfo>
<title> عنوان کتاب </title>
<author>
</author>
</bookinfo>
محتوای کتاب
</book>

\end{verbatim}

The verbatim environment uses only one font, so you need a monospaced font that contains Latin and Persian glyphs. – egreg Sep 21 '12 at 8:04

Try the following code by Vafa Khalighi:

\documentclass{article}
\usepackage{fancyvrb}
\usepackage{xepersian}
\settextfont{XB Niloofar}
\DefineVerbatimEnvironment{myverbatim}{Verbatim}{commandchars=+}
\begin{document}
%\begin{latin}
\begin{myverbatim}

<!DOCTYPE book PUBLIC "-//OASIS//DTD DocBook XML V4.5//EN"
"http://www.oasis-open.org/docbook/xml/4.5/docbookx.dtd">
<book>
<bookinfo>
<title> +rl[عنوان کتاب] </title>
<author>
</author>
</bookinfo>
+rl[ محتوای کتاب]
</book>

+rl[دکتر]

\end{myverbatim}
%\end{latin}
\end{document}

 @Reza: Additionally, for more examples and information, you are very welcome to visit the ParsiLatex website. – Vahid Damanafshan Dec 2 '12 at 10:57 Thanks. This do not work as expected. Even wore than egreg's answer – PHPst Dec 2 '12 at 11:03 @Reza: See my update. For more information, you can see this topic. – Vahid Damanafshan Dec 2 '12 at 11:14 @Reza: Yes, it is. By the way, if everything is OK with my code above, you should accept it as your answer, according to the site's rule. – Vahid Damanafshan Dec 2 '12 at 13:15 Is [ ] wrappers really needed, in your linked page Khalighi presented a not working code that dose not have any wrapper inside verbatim environment, can you also fix that solution too? – PHPst Dec 25 '12 at 9:53

The verbatim environment uses only one font, so you need a monospaced font that contains both Latin and Persian glyphs. Here's an example (but I don't know Persian, so it might be not perfect):

\documentclass{article}
\usepackage{fontspec}
\setmonofont{FreeMono}

\begin{document}
\begin{verbatim}

<!DOCTYPE book PUBLIC "-//OASIS//DTD DocBook XML V4.5//EN"
"http://www.oasis-open.org/docbook/xml/4.5/docbookx.dtd">
<book>
<bookinfo>
<title> عنوان کتاب </title>
<author>
</author>
</bookinfo>
محتوای کتاب
</book>

\end{verbatim}

\end{document}

 Thanks, Persian is a RTL languages. The issue is 'عنوان کتاب' in text is rendered as 'کتاب عنوان' in PDF, usually Persian files use XePersian package in general, but even when I use it verbatim environment have the issue yet, Perhaps there is a config that I forget to set. – PHPst Dec 2 '12 at 4:49 @Reza I'm afraid that this is an inherent limitation of the verbatim environment, where it's quite difficult, as it is now, to change the writing direction. :( – egreg Dec 2 '12 at 10:38
