i'm making a documentation of a system, and i have a lot of code chunks that i want to explain, but some of them are too long. My questions if there are some way to automatically shrink those too big chunks to a fixed number of lines, let say N+3 where 3 are the 3 dotted lines, something like
codeline1 codeline2 . . . codelineN
i'm actually using listings to typeset those code chunks.
