What's the best tool to write a code-heavy ebook?

I'm writing a programming ebook (on introductory programming for bench biologists, if anyone's interested) and am trying to figure out the best tool chain. Ideally, I'd like to write the content in something like markdown or restructuredText, then be able to easily render it to PDF (and maybe eventually epub/mobi). The book will contain a lot of source code and program output, so whatever solution I pick needs to be cope well with chunks of differently-formatted text. Any suggestions?
