How do I use '_' and other characters on LaTeX?
I need to put samples of some command lines in a LaTeX file, but every time I try to use some characters (such as _) I get the " !Missing $ inserted" error.
How can I write strings such as:
./configure FC=gfortran --with-cuda --without-mpi FLAGS_CHECK="-g -O2" FLAGS_NO_CHECK="-g -O2 -ffree-line-length-none -I../shared/ -L/usr/local/cuda/lib64 -fopenmp"
Without having to use $...$? (I don't want it to look like a math expression.)
Use the backslash to escape, i.e., \_. Alternatively, use verbatim environment or a code package (e.g., listings).
Try this \_. So your example should look like:
./configure FC=gfortran --with-cuda --without-mpi FLAGS\_CHECK="-g -O2" FLAGS\_NO\_CHECK="-g -O2 -ffree-line-length-none -I../shared/ -L/usr/local/cuda/lib64 -fopenmp"
