I am trying to use \lstinline but it does not work as expected:


\usepackage{color, listings}




    \begin{lstlisting}[language = C]            
#pragma pack(1)

    Das \lstinline!#pragma pack(1)! dient dazu...


In lstliting #pragma is correctly shown in blue color but with \lstinline it stays black. What is the problem?

Thank you!

    \lstinline still needs to be told the language in order to highlight correctly, just like you have done with lstlisting: \lstinline[language=C]!#pragma pack(1)!. – Paul Gessler Dec 3 '15 at 14:25

Since the last global (document-level) setting of language was {[x86masm]Assembler}, all listings package code commands/environments use this unless another language is specified on a per-listing basis.

Use \lstinline[language=C]!#pragma pack(1)! to use the highlighting rules for the C language for this particular piece of inline code.

Alternatively, if most of the code in the document is C code, remove the line \lstset{language={[x86masm]Assembler}} and use local language overrides for language={[x86masm]Assembler} as needed.
