I do this all the time using the syntax highlighter in Notepad++.

If you don't have Notepad++ (my favorite code/text editor), get it here: http://notepad-plus-plus.org/

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

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,
