4.5 @majorheading, @chapheading: Chapter-level Headings

The @majorheading and @chapheading commands produce chapter-like headings in the body of a document.

However, neither command produces an entry in the table of contents, and neither command causes TeX to start a new page in a printed manual.

In TeX, a @majorheading command generates a larger vertical whitespace before the heading than a @chapheading command but is otherwise the same.

In other output formats, the @majorheading and @chapheading commands produce a similar output to @chapter. The difference is the lack of numbering and the lack of any association with nodes. See @chapter: Chapter Structuring.
