I am creating a LaTeX package. I would like to set the code in the PDF documentation of the package to purple instead of the usual black. Could some one tell me how I could set the code color?

    What package are you using to set the code? – Werner Nov 25 '16 at 7:25
  • Thanks @Werner for your prompt response. I am developing the package code in a ".dtx" file using the package "ltxdoc". – user24098 Nov 25 '16 at 7:47

    @user24098, ltxdoc is a class file, not a package. I think what Werner meant is which package are you using to typeset the code. Like listings, minted, or just the good ol' verbatim mode. :) – Guilherme Zanotelli Nov 25 '16 at 8:43
  • Thanks Guilherme Z. Santos. Sorry for the slip: I meant to write class ltxdoc not package ltxdoc. Yes I am using the good old verbatim mode. – user24098 Nov 25 '16 at 11:05
