Haskell allows you to use a LaTeX \begin{code}...\end{code} environment to
signify code in a literate script (Report Appendix C) --- the only snag is
finding a definition for the ``code'' environment. 

The two that work for me are:

(1) Andrew Cooke's haskell.sty --- this is based on the listings.sty package
which has lots of features to pretty-print your code without editing it or
inserting LaTeX commands. This is available at

(2) The fancybox.sty package --- if the listings package is not available or
fairly old on your LaTeX system then the following will probably still work

% code environment for Haskell/HUGS
% Environment for code --- requires fancybox package
