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.
