@listoffloats: Tables of Contents for Floats
You can write a
@listoffloats command to generate a list of
floats for a given float type (see
@float), analogous to
the document’s overall table of contents. Typically, it is written in
@unnumbered node to provide a heading and structure,
@printindex (see Printing Indices & Menus).
@listoffloats takes one optional argument, the float type.
Here’s an example:
@node List of Figures @unnumbered List of Figures @listoffloats Figure
And here’s what the output from

@float command (see
Each line in the list of floats contains the float type (if any),
the float number, and the caption, if any—the
argument, if it was specified, else the
In Info, the result is a menu where each float can be selected. In
HTML, each line is a link to the float. In printed output, the page
number is included.
Unnumbered floats (those without cross-reference labels) are omitted from the list of floats.
