Now I know you only needed verbatim for filenames I would like to draw
your attention to the url package. Its basic usage is to typeset URLs
which can contain also special characters like % and _. It will typeset
these without the need to escape them, so if your filenames are not too
wild they will also fit. You use \url{file_name.eps} then. One caveat: it
will hyphenate them at certain points if necessary.

And if _ is the only problem character, the following definition may help
to use the _ character within \texttt{}:
