lineannotation — A comment on a line in a verbatim listing.



A lineannotation is an author’s or editor’s comment on a line in one of the verbatim environments. These are annotations added by the documentor; they are not part of the original listing.

Processing expectations

Formatted inline. In verbatim environments like programlisting, which are often presented in a fixed-width font, they may get special typographic treatment, such as italics.

If several lineannotations occur in the same listing, they may be aligned horizontally.
