There are three different cross-reference commands:
Used to start a sentence in the printed manual and in HTML with ‘See …’ or an Info cross-reference saying ‘*Note name: node.’.
Used within or, more often, at the end of a sentence; produces just
the reference in the printed manual and in HTML without the preceding
‘See’ (same as
@xref for Info).
Used within parentheses, at the end of a sentence, or otherwise before punctuation, to make a reference. Its output starts with a lowercase ‘see’ in the printed manual and in HTML, and a lowercase ‘*note’ in Info. (‘p’ is for ‘parenthesis’.)
Additionally, there are commands to produce references to documents
outside the Texinfo system. The
@cite command is used
to make references to books and manuals.
a URL, for example a reference to a page on the World
@inforef is used to make a reference to an Info
file for which there is no printed manual.
