- listings currently has 40 watchers and 2.6k questions, and a very detailed description.
- lstlisting currently has 2 watchers and only 83 questions, and it has no description text at all.
Literally lstlisting is only a sub-tag of listings. It is like tcbposter as a sub-tag of tcolorbox. Therefore, I think lstlisting should be deleted and listings should be used instead in questions, like what has happened with tcbposter.
The only reason, in my opinion, which is "legal" enough to keep the lstlisting is that there are some questions about issues in
lstlisting environment and not related to
\lstinline. But we can still use listings for such questions well. This reason seems to be insufficient.
What do you think?
