The chapter structuring commands fall into four groups or series, each of which contains structuring commands corresponding to the hierarchical levels of chapters, sections, subsections, and subsubsections.
The four groups of commands are the
@chapter series, the
@unnumbered series, the
@appendix series, and the
@heading series. Each command produces a title with a
different appearance in the body of the document. Some of the
commands list their titles in the tables of contents, while others do
not. Here are the details:
@appendixseries of commands produce numbered or lettered entries both in the body of a document and in its table of contents.
@unnumberedseries of commands produce unnumbered entries both in the body of a document and in its table of contents. The
@topcommand, which has a special use, is a member of this series (see @top Command). An
@unnumberedsection is a normal part of the document structure.
@headingseries of commands produce simple unnumbered headings that do not appear in a table of contents, are not associated with nodes, and cannot be cross-referenced. These heading commands never start a new page.
@setchapternewpage command says to do so, the
start new pages in the printed manual; the
do not. See @setchapternewpage.
Here is a summary:
