@section: Sections Below Chapters
@section command identifies a section within a chapter
unit, whether created with
@appendix, following the numbering scheme of the chapter-level
command. Thus, within an
@chapter chapter numbered ‘1’, the
sections are numbered ‘1.1’, ‘1.2’, etc.; within an
“chapter” labeled ‘A’, the sections are numbered ‘A.1’, ‘A.2’, etc.;
@unnumbered chapter, the section gets no number.
The output is underlined with ‘=’ in Info and plain text.
To make a section, write the
@section command at the
beginning of a line and follow it on the same line by the section
title. For example,
@section This is a section
might produce the following in Info:
5.7 This is a section =====================
Section titles are listed in the table of contents.
The TeX, HTML, Docbook, and XML output is all analogous to the chapter-level output, just “one level down”; see @chapter.
