Info Format Whole Manual

Info Format: A Whole Manual

To begin, an Info manual is either nonsplit (contained wholly within a single file) or split (across several files).

The syntax for a nonsplit manual is:

    <nonsplit info file> =
<preamble>
<node>*
<tag table>
(<local variables>)?

When split, there is a main file, which contains only pointers to the nodes given in other subfiles. The main file looks like this:

    <split info main file> =
<preamble>
<indirect table>
<tag table>
(<local variables>)?

The subfiles in a split manual have the following syntax:

    <split info subfile> =
<preamble>
<node>*
