Texinfo is a documentation system that uses a single source file to
produce both on-line information and printed output.
Using Texinfo, you can create a printed document with the normal features
of a book, including chapters, sections, cross references, and indices.
From the same Texinfo source file, you can create a menu-driven, on-line
Info file with nodes, menus, cross references, and indices.
Creating dvi/pdf files from texi files
If you want to create dvi of pdf files from texi files you need all the
packages which are suggested by texinfo, that is currently
texlive-base, texlive-latex-base, texlive-generic-recommended
This is especially important for building packages. If you are a developer
and at package build time you create dvi/pdf/ps file
The current combinations teTeX/TeX live/TeXinfo do not provide the
format anymore. If you want to get cyrtexinfo, the cyrillic texinfo format,
please follow the following steps:
. install either tetex-base and tetex-extra, or texlive-langcyrillic
. comment out the format line in /etc/texmf/fmt.d/50cyrtexinfo.cnf
. create a link
