4.6 The @top Sectioning Command

The @top command is a special sectioning command that you should only use after a ‘@node Top’ line at the beginning of a Texinfo file. The @top command tells the makeinfo formatter which node is to be used as the root of the node tree.

It produces the same sort of output as @unnumbered (see @unnumbered @appendix).

The @top node is conventionally wrapped in an @ifnottex conditional so that it will not appear in TeX output (see Conditionals). Thus, in practice, a Top node usually looks like this:

@node Top
@top your-manual-title

@end ifnottex

@top is ignored when raising or lowering sections. That is, it is never lowered and nothing can be raised to it (see Raise/lower sections).
