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). --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 value 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, after checking validity of TEXINFO-FILE. 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 @documenten‐ coding. --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. -D 'VAR VAL' 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: --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 Doc‐ book, --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.
