How about creating it in HTML, and then ouputting it to PDF?

A space is represented by the code *&nbsp;*

As an alternative, you could use the *<code>* tag to maintain the spaces,
e.g.,

<code>
myResult = dataqueue.add(12, 3)
if myResult == false then
print("Failed to add 12 to the
dataqueue")
end
</code>
