# \literalmode

## Summary

The command \literalmode adjusts the list of special characters in your text.

## Description

When you use \asciimode in a document comments have to be added with two percent signs %% but this leads to problems with inline verbatim code because you can't write \type{%%} anymore. The \literalmode works like \asciimode with the exception that %% isn't used for comments.

## Examples

### Example 1
