C.1 Short Sample

Here is a complete, short sample Texinfo file, without any commentary. You can see this file, with comments, in the first chapter. See Short Sample.

In a nutshell: The makeinfo program transforms a Texinfo source file such as this into an Info file or HTML; and TeX typesets it for a printed manual.

\input texinfo   @c -*-texinfo-*-
@c %**start of header
@settitle Sample Manual 1.0
@c %**end of header

This is a short example of a complete Texinfo file.
