Description

Changes options for displaying verbatim text. When called with a single argument, this command changes the options for the default typing environment as created with \starttyping. When the optional argument is given, it identifies a specific typing environment (as created with \definetyping).

\setuptyping can be used multiple times to change options and options will stay in effect until the end of file.

Note that \setuptyping also affects the display of the \typefile command.

  • space
    • fixed: Lines will not be broken, even if too long (may cause "overfull hbox" message)
  • lines
    • no (default): no hyphenation
    • yes: no hyphenation and left aligned text (align key is ignored)
    • hyphenated: hyphenation
  • range
    • {2,5}: line 2 to 5
    • {2,+3}: line 2 to 5
    • {label:start,label:end}: from label:start to label:end (comments in code)

The option option is for the type of colorization. E.g., to turn off colorization in \startLUA blocks:

\setuptyping[LUA][option=]

Example

Note that background=screen,backgroundscreen=.8 is depricated in MKIV and should be replaced by something like background=color,backgroundcolor=lightgray.

\setuptyping
   [before={\startframedtext[width=\makeupwidth,
                             background=screen,
                             backgroundscreen=.8]},
    after={\stopframedtext}]

\starttext
\starttyping
This is a \test{}
    and everything
  is printed just as I write it
\stoptyping
\stoptext
