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  @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.

       -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.
