       texi2html - a Texinfo to HTML converter


       texi2html [options] file


       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...

       Texi2html may furthermore use latex2html to generate HTML (code and/or images)  for  @math
       and @iftex tags (see the --l2h 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 in general closer to TeX than to Info. Using  init
       files (see the --init-file option), other styles or output formats may be selected.


       Options  may  be  abbreviated  to  th  shortests  unique  prefix. The following is only an
       incomplete list of the available options:

       --help [1|2]
                   Print usage instructions and list the most important,  all  relevant,  or  all
                   recognised (including obsolete) command-line options, and exit.

       --split chapter|section|node
                   Split  the  output  into  several  HTML files (one per main chapter/section or

       --ifinfo --iftex --ifxml --ifplaintext --ifhtml
                   Expand @ifinfo, @iftex and @tex, @ifxml and @xml,  @ifplaintext,  @ifhtml  and
                   @html  regions,  and  don't  expand  @ifnot  corresponding  regions  (default:

       --no-ifinfo --no-iftex --no-ifxml --no-ifplaintext --no-html
                   Don't expand @ifinfo, @iftex, @ifxml, @ifplaintext regions and  expand  @ifnot
                   corresponding regions.

       -I dir      Append dir to the directory list searched for included files.

       -P dir      Prepend dir to the directory list searched for included files.

       --l2h       Use  latex2html  for content of @math and @tex tags. Content must be such that
                   both, latex and tex, can translate it correctly. I.e., no tex-only  constructs
                   must be used.

       --css-include file
                   Use css file file.

       --init-file file
                   Load init file file (see also FILES).

       --document-language lang
                   Use lang as document language.

       --macro-expand file
                   output macro expanded source in file.

       --no-menu   Don't show the Texinfo menus; by default they are shown.

       --no-number Don't number the sections.

       --use-nodes Use nodes for sectionning.

       --prefix    Use as prefix for output files, instead of basename.

                   Produce one file per node for cross references.

       --l2h-l2h prog
                   Use  prog  as  latex2html  program  (default  latex2html).   Program  must  be

       --l2h-init file
                   Use file as latex2html init file. file should be used to specify in which  way
                   latex2html handles mathematical expressions and formulas.

       --l2h-tmp dir
                   Use  dir  as  tmp dir for latex2html. This directory (resp. its path) must not
                   contain a dot  (i.e., a ".").

       --l2h-clean remove all intermediate files generated by latex2html (prevents caching!)

       --l2h-skip  Do not really run latex2html. Use (kept) files of previous runs, instead.

       --verbose   Give a verbose output.

       --version   Print version and exit.


       Initialisation options are  read  first  from  /usr/share/texi2html/texi2html/Config  (the
       exact  location  being  changeable with the --datadir=dir option to the configure script),
       then  from  /etc/texi2html/Config  (the  exact  location   being   changeable   with   the
       --sysconfdir=dir   option   to   the   configure   script),   then   from  ./Config,  from
       $HOME/.texi2html/Config, and from any command-line options including --init-file  options;
       with later settings overriding earlier ones.

       By  default  texi2html  my  creates the following files (foo being the name of the Texinfo

       foo_toc.html    The table of contents (if @contents is present).

       foo.html        The document's contents or the Top element.

       foo_fot.html    The footnotes (if any).

       foo_abt.html    An help section.

       foo_l2h_img*    Images generated by latex2html (if any).

       When used with the --split option, it creates several files (one  per  chapter  or  node),
       named  foo_n.html  (n  being  the  index  of  the  chapter or node), and the foo.html file
       contains the Top element.

       Otherwise it creates only one file: foo.html
