# CTAN has a new package: spverbatim

Date: August 11, 2009 9:42:46 AM CEST
On Mon, 10 Aug 2009 Scott Pakin submitted the new package spverbatim to CTAN. Location on CTAN: /macros/latex/contrib/spverbatim Summary description: Allow line breaks within \verb and verbatim output. License type: lppl Announcement text:
LaTeX's \verb macro treats its argument as an unbreakable unit of text. This can lead to poor typesetting, especially when the argument is long. The spverbatim package provides an \spverb macro that is analogous to \verb and an spverbatim environment that is analogous to verbatim with the difference being that \spverb and spverbatim allow LaTeX to break lines at space characters.
This package is located at http://mirror.ctan.org/macros/latex/contrib/spverbatim . More information is at http://tug.ctan.org/info/?id=spverbatim (if the package is new it may take a day for that information to appear). We are supported by the TeX Users Group http://www.tug.org .
