If none of the suggestions you have received already work for you. You might want to look at Andrew Pitonyak's book [1]. It has syntax highlighted basic code. I don't know if you can tell how he did by looking at the document though.

I used NoteTab [free] and NotePad ++ as my first Windows programming and
HTML editor.

Having the extension to do the highlighting in Writer is a good idea

If I remember correctly, for the Note. . .  editors you can find "add
ons" that are specific to the programming code.  I have not tried them
in a few years, but they were a real big aid to my early programming
within the Windows environment.  I do not remember when I installed the
first one, but it was in the early days of my having dial-up Internet
access, or a little later.  I do not remember if I got online with Win
95 or 98 era. but I know I used them when I was using he "new" Windows
version - XP.

Would you tell us how large of a document these code samples will be in?

Are you writing a programming guide type of documentation?

Hopefully the RTF formatting option works.  Sometimes pictures of text
do not work well, since the snapshot resolution and the print resolution
could be very different.  I tend to have to make 600 DPI scanned images
to get a decent "near 1 to 1 size" image when I print out a "best" print

If you need to do the snapshot, I would run the image through a scaling
option, with a edge smoothing "effect", to make the image in a large
enough DPI and actual print size for your needs that actually look well.

Here's how to get syntax highlighted code into your LibreOffice

1: Open source file with Notepad++
2: In Notepad++ click Plugins > NppExport > Export to RTF

You will now have a syntax highlighted copy of your source file
however, it will be double spaced. To remove the extra spaces proceed
as follows:

1: With any editor, open the .rtf file you just created
2: Search and replace "\par" with "\line"
3: Save file

Open the .rtf file with LibreOffice Writer, select all (CTRL-A), copy
& paste into your working document.

This sounds like a bit of an ordeal, but I do this quite frequently,
and once you've done it a few times, it becomes very fast and easy.

Good luck,

This the kind of macro I need but it does not seem to work with
