# \type

## Syntax

 \type{...} {...} text

## Description

Verbatim text, typeset in typewriter font.

In a caption (and probably other places), \type can cause errors if it contains active characters (| for example). You can use

\type{...}\type{|}\type{...}
as a workaround, since the first character is not expanded.

## Example

\type{\bf You can type any %ld thing you |ike, even command\$.}\crlf
\type-You can choose your own delimiters-\crlf
\setuptype[option=slanted]
\type{house <>}


• \setuptype — set options
• \starttyping — displayed typing
• \typ — verbatim text with hyphenation, in MkIV
• \tex — print verbatim with a backslash in front. Used for TeX commands
• \arg — print verbatim, surrounded by {...}. Used for arguments.
