## Verbatim

Within this environment things come out unformatted. It's useful for showing examples of typed input and provides a way of printing characters that have a special meaning for LATEX.

\begin{verbatim} caret is ^, tilde is ~ and backslash is \ \end{verbatim} 

produces

caret is ^, tilde is ~ and backslash is \

If you just want to quote a few characters, use \verb|quoted text|. The characters delimiting the quote can be anything as long as they are the same.
