Using the following code in emacs configuration file makes the listed environment as verbatim.

(setq LaTeX-verbatim-environments-local '("Verbatim" "lstlisting"))

How can I add following environment to this list.


I have tried the following but its not working

(setq LaTeX-verbatim-environments-local '("Verbatim" "lstlisting" "code"))
  • Did you evaluate that code or restart Emacs?

  • @giordano Yes. I restarted emacs after modifying emacs configuration file but the effect was same as before.

  • @giordano The intention is to make the code environment as verbatim so that I can use symbols like _ in my code environment. But when I specify the argument to code environment, emacs doesn't recognize this environment as verbatim any more. For e.g. \begin{code}{hi} some_code \end{code}

  • @giordano Specifically when I specify a command in that argument. For exmple. \begin{code}{\texttt{S\char`_h} some_code \end{code}

For emacs -Q, @giordano's suggestion of restarting emacs should have worked, though all I had to do was evaluate

(add-to-list 'LaTeX-verbatim-environments "code")

and run M-x LaTeX-mode again.

  • If file parsing is enabled this isn't even needed ;-)

  • If this is true, then I have some impossible bug reports for the mailing list :-) Commented Mar 7, 2017 at 18:58
  • Well, yes, it should. If this isn't the case for you, please report the bug :-)
