\verb char literal_text char
\verb*char literal_text char

Typesets literal_text exactly as typed, including special characters and spaces, using a typewriter (\tt) font. There may be no space between \verb or \verb* and char (space is shown here only for clarity). The *-form differs only in that spaces are printed as "visual" spaces, i.e., a short, squat "u".

Any char except a space (or a * for the \verb form) may be chosen as the delimiter. Thus
