Re: [help-texinfo] Defining new environments?

Hello Karl and Gavin,

I’m writing a doc for developpers, with soure code snippets that are not 
complete, such a left braces with no corresponding right brace.

@example complains in that a case, hence the use of @verbatim, but I need to 
indent the snippets for the sake of clarity of the text.

Building the doc fails if I define VerbatimBlock and EndVerbatimBlock the way 
Gavin proposes.
I’ll thus have to stick to my current way of doing things.

Thanks for your help!
