texi2any - translate Texinfo documents


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


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

This program is commonly installed as both `makeinfo' and `texi2any'; the behavior is
identical, and does not depend on the installed name.

General options:
--document-language=STR locale to use in translating Texinfo keywords
for the output document (default C).

quit after NUM errors (default 100).

preserve output even if errors.

--help display this help and exit.

suppress node cross-reference validation.

suppress warnings (but not errors).

search also for initialization files in DIR.

load FILE to modify the default behavior.

-c, --set-customization-variable VAR=VAL
set customization variable VAR to value VAL.

-v, --verbose
explain what is being done.

display version information and exit.

Output format selection (default is to produce Info):
output Docbook XML rather than Info.

--html output HTML rather than Info.

output plain text rather than Info.

--xml output Texinfo XML rather than Info.

--dvi, --dvipdf, --ps, --pdf
call texi2dvi to generate given output, after checking validity of TEXINFO-FILE.

General output options:
-E, --macro-expand=FILE
output macro-expanded source to FILE, ignoring any @setfilename.

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.

suppress any splitting of the output; generate only one output file.

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:
do not output accented and special characters in Info output based on

override --disable-encoding (default).

break Info lines at NUM characters (default 72).

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).

indent Info paragraphs by VAL spaces (default 3). If VAL is `none', do not indent;
if VAL is `asis', preserve existing indentation.

split Info files at size NUM (default 300000).

Options for HTML:
include FILE in HTML <style> output; read stdin if FILE is -.

generate CSS reference to URL.

produce list of internal links in FILE.

split at SPLIT, where SPLIT may be `chapter', `section' or `node'.

use file names in ASCII transliteration.

produce redirection files for nodes and anchors; default is set only if split.

Options for XML and Docbook:
does nothing, retained for compatibility.

Options for DVI/PS/PDF:
pass OPT to texi2dvi; can be repeated.

Input file options:
does nothing, retained for compatibility.

-D VAR define the variable VAR, as with @set.

define VAR to VAL (one shell argument).

-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:
process @ifdocbook and @docbook even if not generating Docbook.

process @ifhtml and @html even if not generating HTML.

process @ifinfo even if not generating Info.

process @ifplaintext even if not generating plain text.

process @iftex and @tex.

process @ifxml and @xml.

do not process @ifdocbook and @docbook text.

do not process @ifhtml and @html text.

do not process @ifinfo text.

do not process @ifplaintext text.

do not process @iftex and @tex text.

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.
