The LaTeX command to set a text string in the typewriter font is `\texttt{...}`. The corresponding plain TeX command is `{\tt ...}`. `\mathtt` also exists for use in (LaTeX) math environments, but its use is rare. Note that "special characters" (e.g., backslash) are not by default set in the `tt` font; if that style is needed, [verbatim] mode is probably more appropriate.
