A.4 Obsolete @-Commands

Here are Texinfo @-commands which are obsolete or have been removed completely. This section is for historical purposes.


This command used to refill and indent the paragraph after all the other processing has been done. It is no longer needed, since all formatters now automatically refill as needed, but you may still see it in the source to some manuals, as it does no harm.


In the past, the contents commands were sometimes placed at the end of the file, after any indices and just before the @bye, but we no longer recommend this. This command could be used by a user printing a manual, to force the contents to be printed after the title page (after the ‘@end titlepage’ line) even if the @contents command was at the end of the manual.


This placed the short table of contents after the ‘@end titlepage’ command even if the @shortcontents command was at the end.
