I am using cweb from TeX Live as installed with macports, and I am using the LaTeX document class cweb.

When I insert a named chunk in my code, as such



@ Hello, world.

@<print ...@>=
printf( "Hello, world!\n" );


int main( int __unused argc, char __unused *argv[] )
  @<print hello world@>

  return 0;


the newline after the chunk name print hello world and before return 0; is missing.

That is, my pdf is rendered something like

<print hello world>return 0;

which makes using cweb unusable for my purpose.

Is this a bug in the cweb document class or am I doing something wrong here?

    Welcome to TeX.SX! Please don't post code fragments. Instead, put your fragments into a complete compilable document that shows the problem. – BambOo Oct 13 '18 at 11:33
  • Thanks, I've expanded the example to be complete document which demonstrates the problem; at least for me. – Johann Oskarsson Oct 13 '18 at 13:22

Use @/ to add a manual line break in the cweave output:

  @<print hello world@>@/
  return 0;
