NAME

makeinfo - translate Texinfo documents  

SYNOPSIS

makeinfo [OPTION]... TEXINFO-FILE...
texi2any [OPTION]... TEXINFO-FILE...  

DESCRIPTION

Translate Texinfo source documentation to various other formats, by default Info files suitable for reading online with Emacs or standalone GNU Info.  

General options:

--document-language=STR locale to use in translating Texinfo keywords
for the output document (default C).
--error-limit=NUM
quit after NUM errors (default 100).
--force
preserve output even if errors.
--help
display this help and exit.
--no-validate
suppress node cross-reference validation.
--no-warn
suppress warnings (but not errors).
--conf-dir=DIR
search also for initialization files in DIR.
--init-file=FILE
load FILE to modify the default behavior.
-c, --set-customization-variable VAR=VAL
set customization variable VAR to VAL.
-v, --verbose
explain what is being done.
--version
display version information and exit.
 

Output format selection (default is to produce Info):

--docbook
output Docbook XML rather than Info.
--html
output HTML rather than Info.
--plaintext
output plain text rather than Info.
--xml
output Texinfo XML rather than Info.
--dvi, --dvipdf, --ps, --pdf
call texi2dvi to generate given output.
 

General output options:

-E, --macro-expand=FILE
output macro-expanded source to FILE, ignoring any @setfilename.
--no-headers
suppress node separators, Node: lines, and menus from Info output (thus producing plain text) or from HTML (thus producing shorter output). Also, if producing Info, write to standard output by default
--no-split
suppress any splitting of the output; generate only one output file.
--[no-]number-sections
output chapter and sectioning numbers; default is on.
-o, --output=DEST
output to DEST. With split output, create DEST as a directory
and put the output files there.
With non-split output, if DEST is already
a directory or ends with a /, put the output file there.
Otherwise, DEST names the output file.
 

Options for Info and plain text:

--disable-encoding
do not output accented and special characters in Info output based on @documentencoding.
--enable-encoding
override --disable-encoding (default).
--fill-column=NUM
break Info lines at NUM characters (default 72).
--footnote-style=STYLE
output footnotes in Info according to STYLE: `separate' to put them in their own node; `end' to put them at the end of the node, in which they are defined (this is the default).
--paragraph-indent=VAL
indent Info paragraphs by VAL spaces (default 3). If VAL is `none', do not indent; if VAL is `asis', preserve existing indentation.
--split-size=NUM
split Info files at size NUM (default 300000).
 

Options for HTML:

--css-include=FILE
include FILE in HTML <style> output; read stdin if FILE is -.
--css-ref=URL
generate CSS reference to URL.
--internal-links=FILE
produce list of internal links in FILE.
--split=SPLIT
split at SPLIT, where SPLIT may be `chapter', `section' or `node'.
--transliterate-file-names
use file names in ASCII transliteration.
--node-files
produce redirection files for nodes and anchors; default is set only if split.
 

Options for XML and Docbook:

--output-indent=VAL
does nothing, retained for compatibility.
 

Options for DVI/PS/PDF:

--Xopt=OPT
pass OPT to texi2dvi; can be repeated.
 

Input file options:

--commands-in-node-names
does nothing, retained for compatibility.
-D VAR
define the variable VAR, as with @set.
-I DIR
append DIR to the @include search path.
-P DIR
prepend DIR to the @include search path.
-U VAR
undefine the variable VAR, as with @clear.
 

Conditional processing in input:

--ifdocbook
process @ifdocbook and @docbook even if not generating Docbook.
--ifhtml
process @ifhtml and @html even if not generating HTML.
--ifinfo
process @ifinfo even if not generating Info.
--ifplaintext
process @ifplaintext even if not generating plain text.
--iftex
process @iftex and @tex.
--ifxml
process @ifxml and @xml.
--no-ifdocbook
do not process @ifdocbook and @docbook text.
--no-ifhtml
do not process @ifhtml and @html text.
--no-ifinfo
do not process @ifinfo text.
--no-ifplaintext
do not process @ifplaintext text.
--no-iftex
do not process @iftex and @tex text.
--no-ifxml
do not process @ifxml and @xml text. Also, for the --no-ifFORMAT options, do process @ifnotFORMAT text. The defaults for the @if... conditionals depend on the output format: if generating Docbook, --ifdocbook is on and the others are off; if generating HTML, --ifhtml is on and the others are off; if generating Info, --ifinfo is on and the others are off; if generating plain text, --ifplaintext is on and the others are off; if generating XML, --ifxml is on and the others are off.
