# \definetyping

## Syntax

 \definetyping[...][...,...=...,...] [...] file typing name [...,...=...,...] see \setuptyping

## Description

Defines a new typing environment and the corresponding \start and \stop commands. The first argument is the name of the typing environment, the second argument are the options to apply for this environment.

Note that difference with \setuptyping: \definetyping defines a new typing environment, while \setuptyping changes the options of an existing typing environment (including the default environment that you get when using \starttyping).
