SYNOPSIS

       makeinfo [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:
       --error-limit=NUM
              quit after NUM errors (default 100).

       --document-language=STR locale to use in translating Texinfo keywords
              for the output document (default C).

       --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).

       -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.

       --xml  output Texinfo XML rather than Info.

       --plaintext
              output plain text rather than Info.

   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, write to standard output by default.

       --no-split
              suppress the splitting of Info or HTML output, generate only one
              output file.

       --number-sections
              output chapter and sectioning numbers.

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

   Options for Info and plain text:
       --disable-encoding
              do not output accented and special  characters  in  Info  output
              based on @documentencoding.

       --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 reference to a CSS file.

   Options for XML and Docbook:
       --output-indent=VAL
              indent  XML  elements  by  VAL spaces (default 2).  If VAL is 0,
              ignorable whitespace is dropped.

   Input file options:
       --commands-in-node-names
              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:
       --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; implies --no-split.

       --ifxml
              process @ifxml and @xml.

       --no-ifdocbook
              do not process @ifdocbook and @docbook text.

              do not process @ifinfo text.

              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  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.
