is there a way to define inside lstinline line breaks globally? I only found this solution Listing / lstinline and line breaks where i should use

... your paragraph with \lstinline...

But this question is two years old, maybe there is now a better solution to declare it in the preambel?

  • From what I know, there is no such option.

I was searching for the same thing, and this is among the top results, but no answer. Apparently, there now is a better option: Enforce a line-break inside \lstinline


works for me. However, with very long stuff, i.e.

\lstinline[breaklines=true]$ffmpeg  -framerate 3 -pattern_type glob -i '*.jpg' -loglevel fatal -vcodec libx264 -r 24 -pix_fmt yuv420p -tune animation mymovietitle.mp4$

where no one would bother to make the code more readable in the first place (being one line, is the key quality of a bash one liner), it still can produce ugly stuff, so it's not the perfect solution.
