I have a question about a Verbatim, I want to write a word inside of the subsubsection title. I got an error. How can I fix it?: \subsubsection{The \verb+@interface+ Section}

    Use \protect before \verb+@interface+ – azetina Nov 23 '12 at 3:17

    For simple spells like @interfcae I'd just write \subsubsection{The \texttt{@interface} Section}. When the spells have braces({}) in them, just escape them: \{` or \}. – user10274 Nov 23 '12 at 4:09
  • Thanks to all for your helping. The type of document that I write is a report; I tried with all methods, but the only one that works for me is the \texttt{}, although I use the cprotectand fancyvrb packages. – Isai Nov 23 '12 at 4:13

Use the cprotect package:

\usepackage{cprotect}% http://ctan.org/pkg/cprotect
\cprotect\subsubsection{The \verb+@interface+ Section}

However, consider reading through the informative UK TeX FAQ entry: Why doesn’t verbatim work within …? In particular, other alternatives like \texttt{...} also exist and are far more manageable. Even in your case, using

\subsubsection{The \texttt{@interface} Section}

works as-is.

  • Very interesting reading in that link! – Ludwik May 26 at 15:45

The standard \verb command cannot be used in the argument of other commands. You can use \Verb from the fancyvrb package:



\subsubsection{The \protect\Verb+@interface+ Section}

    While this works, it still doesn't allow for adding special characters in the argument to \Verb, so the simpler \texttt might be better. – egreg Nov 24 '12 at 10:48
