# How to include Matlab code into LaTeX in colour? [duplicate]

I need Matlab code, e.g. the one here, in LaTeX and in colour (the comment is green, for/if/else/end is blue).

% super cooles Programm
i = 1
for i = 1:10
if i > 3
i=i+2
else
i=i+1
end
end


I tried

\begin{lstlisting}
code
\end{lstlisting}


this gave me the code, but not in colour.

I tried

\lstinputlisting[language=Matlab, frame=single]{\MatlabCodeToLaTeX.m}


this gave me the error message, that LaTeX couldn't start the file.

How do I get the code properly colored?

• Have you tried artefact.tk/software/matlab/highlight?

• Also, the error with \lstinputlisting seems to imply that it just can't find the .m file; are you sure you've got the path correct?

• What does the MatlabCodeToLaTeX macro do? File paths use /, macros use . Jul 28 '15 at 22:46

I adapted the example form TEX

\documentclass{article}
\usepackage{listings}
\usepackage{color} %red, green, blue, yellow, cyan, magenta, black, white
\definecolor{mygreen}{RGB}{28,172,0} % color values Red, Green, Blue
\definecolor{mylilas}{RGB}{170,55,241}

\lstset{language=Matlab,%
%basicstyle=\color{red},
breaklines=true,%
morekeywords={matlab2tikz},
keywordstyle=\color{blue},%
morekeywords=[2]{1}, keywordstyle=[2]{\color{black}},
identifierstyle=\color{black},%
stringstyle=\color{mylilas},
showstringspaces=false,%without this there will be a symbol in the places where there is a space
numbers=left,%
numberstyle={\tiny \color{black}},% size of the numbers
numbersep=9pt, % this defines how far the numbers are from the text
emph=[1]{for,end,break},emphstyle=[1]\color{red}, %some words to emphasise
%emph=[2]{word1,word2}, emphstyle=[2]{style},
}
\begin{document}
\begin{lstlisting}[frame=single]
% super cooles Programm
i = 1
for i = 1:10
if i > 3
i=i+2
else
i=i+1
end
end
\end{lstlisting}
\end{document}

PS: next time when there is a latex question try searching TEX first!
