# How to get Matlab code into a LaTeX document?

I'm trying to put in my thesis matlab code but the results are not very good. I would get something like that but I don't know what packages using and how to create this result:

• Please reformulate the title of your question. I think the listings package is what you're looking for. Nov 29 '12 at 12:16
• There's also mcode, which uses listings. Nov 29 '12 at 12:25
• There's also pythontex and minted, which use the Python syntax highlighting library Pygments. These can highlight Matlab code and Matlab interactive sessions. Nov 29 '12 at 13:10
• Whatever solution you choose, please make sure that the resulting code listing is copy-and-pasteable. Your 25 readers will hate it otherwise. Nov 29 '12 at 13:13
• The matlab-prettifier package is your friend, here; see this answer. Feb 13 '14 at 23:15

I personally prefer the minted package. It's a little trouble to set up by the output is very neat and tidy -- and it has syntax highlighting.

Output:

Code:

\documentclass{article}

\usepackage{minted}

\begin{document}

\definecolor{bg}{rgb}{0.95,0.95,0.95}
\begin{minted}[linenos=true,bgcolor=bg]{matlab}

% Gradient descent algo for linear regression
% author: Nauman (recluze)

%set the data
X=[1 1 1 1 1 1 1; 22 49 80 26 40 54 91];
Y=[20 24 42 22 23 26 55];
hold on;
plot(X(2,:),Y, 'x');

% set the actual values of W
W = [5.775 0.474]';
YAct = (W' * X);


You'll have to call pdflatex with --shell-escape though and you will have to install a package that provides pygmentize command.
