texi2html - a Texinfo to HTML converter
texi2html [options] file
texi2html -check [-verbose] files
Texi2html converts the given Texinfo file to a set of HTML files. It tries to handle most
of the Texinfo commands. It creates hypertext links for cross-references, footnotes...
It also tries to add links from a reference to its corresponding entry in the bibliography
(if any). It may also handle a glossary (see the -glossary option).
Texi2html creates several files depending on the contents of the Texinfo file and on the
chosen options (see FILES).
The HTML files created by texi2html are closer to TeX than to Info, that's why texi2html
converts @iftex sections and not @ifinfo ones by default. You can reverse this with the
-check Check the given file and give the list of all things that may be Texinfo com-
mands. This may be used to check the output of texi2html to find the Texinfo
commands that have been left in the HTML file.
-expandinfo Expand @ifinfo sections, not @iftex ones.
-glossary Use the section named 'Glossary' to build a list of terms and put links in the
HTML document from each term toward its definition.
Use name to create invisible destination anchors for index links. This is a
workaround for a known bug of many WWW browsers, including xmosaic.
-I dir Look also in dir to find included files.
-menu Show the Texinfo menus; by default they are ignored.
-monolithic Output only one file, including the table of contents and footnotes.
-number Number the sections.
Split the output into several HTML files (one per main section: chapter, ap-
-split_node Split the output into several HTML files (one per node).
-usage Print usage instructions, listing the current available command-line options.
-verbose Give a verbose output. Can be used with the -check option.
By default texi2html creates the following files (foo being the name of the Texinfo file):
foo_toc.html The table of contents.
foo.html The document's contents.
foo_foot.html The footnotes (if any).
When used with the -split option, it creates several files (one per chapter or node),
named foo_n.html (n being the indice of the chapter or node), instead of the single
When used with the -monolithic option, it creates only one file: foo.html
texi2html predefines the following variables: html, texi2html.
texi2html implements the following non-Texinfo commands:
@ifhtml This indicates the start of an HTML section, this section will passed
through without any modofication.
@end ifhtml This indcates the end of an HTML section.
This is texi2html version 1.51, 09/10/96.
