## LaTeX inline verbatim translation broken

Reported by Bil Kleb | March 6th, 2009 @ 08:19 AM

Currently, RedCloth translates @inline_code@ to \begin{verbatim}inline_code\end{verbatim}, which is for large blocks, not short, inlined phrases. Instead, @inline_code@ should be translated to LaTeX's \verb command like so: \verb@inline_code@.

The implementation difficulty, however, is that the \verb command requires a delimiting character be used that is not contained in the phrase you are trying to typeset verbatim. In order words, are we safe if we use the @ character as the delimiter or are their Textile cases where an @ character can be embedded in the verbatim phrase?

Couldn't find a test that indicated embedded @ characters would be a problem.

Note: Sticking [#116 status:resolved] didn't take possibly because I changed the "Who's responsible" to me and it looks like the resolved message came via jgarber?
