I want my Java code to be typeset in a monospaced font, so I am using the verbatim environment. LaTeX commands are highlighted in Eclipse, but as soon as I use the verbatim environment everything inside and the color of the environment itself becomes gray.


 public class main {
 public static void main (string[] args){
     for(int i = 0; i < arg.length; i ++){


I'm using the verbatim and alltt packages.

Update 1. MWE.

\begin{frame}{Классификация по поколениям}


\item Третьего поколения (высокоуровневые языки) - последовательность
высокоуровневых конструкций (циклы, условные выражения, классы, интерфейсы,
методы, процедуры, \ldots) \pause



Fortran, C, C++, C\#, Java, Lisp.


public class main {
public statiс void main (string[] args){
for(int i = 0; i < arg.length; i ++){




\item Четвертого поколения (для конкретного применения) -
последовательность инструкций конкретной предметной области \pause

SQL, Postscript, XML, Mathlab.

    Welcome to TeX.SX! Personally, I would expect this behavior. There is nothing telling eclipse that what's inside is java code—frankly I would be surprised if it handled that case even with a package such as listings. I'm not sure there is a way to get the behavior you want. – Sean Allred Feb 19 '14 at 6:12
  • As a hint, in a beamer presentation you can use semiverbatim, so you can use overlays and the like. – Johannes_B Feb 19 '14 at 7:34

    If you want to use verbatim in a frame, you have to use \begin{frame}[fragile] – egreg Feb 19 '14 at 9:28

    That's not a minimal example - you forgot the everything-but-the-kitchen-sink package. – Martin Schröder Feb 19 '14 at 16:06

    Please read the fine beamer manual; it has a section on verbatim. – Martin Schröder Feb 19 '14 at 16:08

You cannot use any of the verbatim environments, including verbatim itself, just as any of the listing environment without writing,


or any other form of passing the fragile flag to the \frame command. If the frame does not include any overlays, i.e., it has only a single slide, it is recommended to write:
