       makeinfo - 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.

   General options:
	      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).

	      warn about at most NUM references (default 1000).

       -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.

       --xml  output Texinfo XML rather than Info.

   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, write to standard
	      output by default.

	      suppress splitting of Info or HTML output, generate only one output file.

	      output chapter and sectioning numbers.

       -o, --output=FILE
	      output to FILE (directory if split HTML),

   Options for Info and plain text:
	      output accented and special characters in Info output based on @documentencoding.

	      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 (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 50000).

   Input file options:
	      allow @ commands in node names.

       -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:
	      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; implies --no-split.

	      process @ifxml and @xml.

	      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.

	      The defaults for the @if... conditionals depend on the output format: 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;

       makeinfo foo.texi
	      write Info to foo's @setfilename

       makeinfo --html foo.texi
