This question came from our site for professional and enthusiast programmers.

A combination of tabularx and listings would suffice:

\documentclass{beamer}% http://ctan.org/pkg/beamer
\usepackage{tabularx,listings}% http://ctan.org/pkg/{tabularx,listings}
\lstset{
language=C++,
basicstyle=\small\ttfamily
}
\newsavebox{\codebox}% Used to store listings/code
\begin{document}
\begin{lrbox}{\codebox}
\begin{lstlisting}
public class <Name> {
....
...
..
.
..
...
....
}
\end{lstlisting}
\end{lrbox}
\begin{frame}
\begin{tabularx}{\linewidth}{X|X}
\usebox{\codebox}
&
\usebox{\codebox}
\end{tabularx}
\end{frame}
\end{document}


The fragile nature of beamer's frame environment can be avoided by storing the content in a box (\codebox) and use it later. Or, you could explicitly use the fragile option for each frame. See How to put C++ source code into beamer slides. For a flavour in terms of keyword colouring, see How to format C program code block nicely.

See the listings documentation for more information on possible settings.
