PDF to MOBI formatting source code

Hello,
I was searching all over the internet including this forum without success.

Can a PDF book (about programming) with lot of source code listings (with indentations etc.) be converted to MOBI with preserved formatting?

The code is now converted to default font, loses indentation and gets lines wrapped and is almost unreadable.

I was wondering if MOBI even supports this and if Calibre can convert it to some readable form.

Thanks

You need to do a LOT of post convert correction. Read the (PDF)sticky at the top of this forum.

IMHO there are cases to use PDF. This is one of them.
