2.5 Updating Nodes and Menus

Texinfo mode provides commands for automatically creating or updating menus and node pointers. The commands are called “update” commands because their most frequent use is for updating a Texinfo file after you have worked on it; but you can use them to insert the ‘Next’, ‘Previous’, and ‘Up’ pointers into an @node line that has none and to create menus in a file that has none.

If you do not use any updating commands, you need to write menus and node pointers by hand, which is a tedious task.
