       makeinfo - translate Texinfo documents

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

       Translate  Texinfo  source documentation to various other formats: Info
       files suitable for reading online with Emacs or standalone GNU Info (by
       default); plain text (with --no-headers); or HTML (with --html).

	      allow @ commands in node names.

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

       -E, --macro-expand FILE
	      output macro-expanded source to FILE.

	      quit after NUM errors (default 100).

	      break Info lines at NUM characters (default 72).

	      output footnotes according to STYLE:

	      `separate'  to place footnotes in their own node, `end' to place
	      the footnotes at the end of the

	      node in which they are defined (the default).

	      preserve output even if errors.

       --help display this help and exit.

       --html output HTML rather than Info format;

       -I DIR append DIR to the @include search path.

	      process @ifhtml and @html text even when not

	      generating HTML.

	      process @ifinfo text even when generating HTML.

	      process @iftex and @tex text.

	      implies --no-split.

	      suppress Info node separators and Node: lines and

	      write to standard output without --output.

	      do not process @ifhtml and @html text.

	      do not process @ifinfo text.

	      do not process @iftex and @tex text.

	      suppress splitting of large Info output files or	generation  of
	      one HTML file per node.

	      suppress node cross-reference validation.

	      suppress warnings (but not errors).

	      include chapter, section, etc. numbers in output.

       -o, --output=FILE
	      output to FILE, ignoring any @setfilename.

       -P DIR prepend DIR to the @include search path.

	      indent Info paragraphs by VAL spaces (default 3).

	      if  VAL  is  `none',  do	not indent; if VAL is `asis', preserve
	      existing indentation.

	      warn about at most NUM references (default 1000).

       -U VAR undefine a variable, as with @clear.

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

	      display version information and exit.

       The defaults for the @if... conditionals depend on the  output  format:
       if  generating HTML, --ifhtml is on and the others are off; if generat‐
       ing Info or plain text, --ifinfo is on and the others are off.

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

       makeinfo --html foo.texi
	      write HTML to foo's @setfilename

       makeinfo --no-headers -o - foo.texi
	      write plain text to standard output

       makeinfo --number-sections foo.texi
	      write Info with numbered sections

       makeinfo --no-split foo.texi
