# minted and tcolorbox: putting code in the title

I suppose it's meant to be used like this:

But sometimes I like to use the title section to represent code or a command or some kind of input, and show the output in the bottom section like this: The problem is the typesetting (no monospace, weird quotes, etc.), no syntax highlighting, LaTeX interprets various commands & special characters (e.g. \$, &, #, ^, _, \\) and trying to use \verb is problematic (LaTeX Error: \verb illegal in command argument.).

Any ideas? Thanks. Here's the code:

%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%
\documentclass[margin=10,varwidth]{standalone}
\usepackage[minted,most]{tcolorbox}
%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%
\begin{document}
%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%
\begin{tcolorbox}[title=\textbf{echo 'hello, world'}]
\begin{minted}{bash}
hello, world
\end{minted}
\end{tcolorbox}
%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%
\begin{tcolorbox}[title=\textbf{hello\_world.sh}]
\begin{minted}{bash}
#!/usr/bin/env bash
echo 'hello, world'
\end{minted}
\end{tcolorbox}
%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%
\end{document}
%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%

• A less painfull approach would be utilize "upper" and "lower" part of tcolorbox (access via \tcblower); you can also have a subtitle in each box. – Tomáš Kruliš Nov 24 '19 at 17:57
• @TomášKruliš You're right, that might be better. Would you care to demonstrate? I see a few things like what you describe in the manual, but what you describe sounds even better. – voices Nov 25 '19 at 17:14

This is a possible solution using a listing and comment and bicolor box. Upper box shows the listing and lower one the comment which is the expected result.

The overlay line tries to mimic the geometry of a regular tcolorbox with title and upper part.
