I want to use math mode in lstlisting. How do I do that? How to put tab in this mode?


\begin{lstlisting}[frame=single]                % Start your code-block
module main()
enumerated States {$S_0$,$S_1$,$S_2$,$S_3$}
integer c;
initial : c = 0 and States = $S_0$;

    See 4.14 Escaping to LATEX of the documentation of listings. Jul 18 '12 at 10:36

The escapeinside option allows you to define how to escape from verbatim. Here's an example:

  if foo
  list= { (*$S_1,S_2,S_3$*) }

I've used escapeinside to define an opening (* and closing *) escape commands. Things between (* and *) will be typeset normally. Obviously, if (* or *) are common in whatever language you're using, you should pick something else.

In fact, if all you want to do is escape maths, you can use the mathescape option:

  if foo
  list= { $S_1,S_2,S_3$ }
