texi2html - a Texinfo to HTML converter
texi2html [options] file
Texi2html converts the given Texinfo file to a set of HTML files. It
tries to handle most of the Texinfo commands. It creates hypertext
links for cross-references, footnotes...
Texi2html may furthermore use latex2html to generate HTML (code and/or
images) for @math and @iftex tags (see the --l2h option).
Texi2html creates several files depending on the contents of the Tex-
info file and on the chosen options (see FILES).
The HTML files created by texi2html are closer to TeX than to Info.
Options may be abbreviated to th shortests unique prefix. The following
is only an incomplete list of the available options:
Print usage instructions and list the most important, all
relevant, or all recognised (including obsolete) command-
line options, and exit.
--ifinfo --iftex --ifxml --ifplaintext --ifhtml
Expand @ifinfo, @iftex and @tex, @ifxml and @xml, @ifplain-
text, @ifhtml and @html regions, and don’t expand @ifnot
corresponding regions (default: ifhtml).
--no-ifinfo --no-iftex --no-ifxml --no-ifplaintext --no-html
Don’t expand @ifinfo, @iftex, @ifxml, @ifplaintext regions
and expand @ifnot corresponding regions.
-I dir Append dir to the directory list searched for included
-P dir Prepend dir to the directory list searched for included
--no-menu Don’t show the Texinfo menus; by default they are shown.
--no-number Don’t number the sections.
Split the output into several HTML files (one per main
chapter/section or node).
--l2h Use latex2html for content of @math and @tex tags. Content
must be such that both, latex and tex, can translate it
correctly. I.e., no tex-only constructs must be used.
Use prog as latex2html program (default latex2html). Pro-
gram must be executable.
Use file as latex2html init file. file should be used to
specify in which way latex2html handles mathematical
expressions and formulas.
Note that latex2html locates (and uses) init-files in the
following order (provided they exist): (1) global init file
(usually in latex2html source dir) (2)
$HOME/.latex2html_init (3) ./.latex2html_init (4) init file
given on command line.
Use dir as tmp dir for latex2html. This directory (resp.
its path) must not contain a dot (i.e., a ".").
--l2h-clean remove all intermediate files generated by latex2html (pre-
--l2h-skip Do not really run latex2html. Use (kept) files of previous
--Verbose Give a verbose output.
--version Print version and exit.
Initialisation options are read first from /etc/texi2html/Config (the
exact location being changeable with the --sysconfdir=dir option to the
configure script), then from $HOME/.texi2html/Config, then any command-
line options including --init-file options; with later settings over-
riding earlier ones.
By default texi2html my creates the following files (foo being the name
of the Texinfo file):
foo_toc.html The table of contents (if @contents is present).
foo.html The document’s contents or the Top element.
foo_fot.html The footnotes (if any).
foo_abt.html An help section.
foo_l2h_img* Images generated by latex2html (if any).
When used with the --split option, it creates several files (one per
chapter or node), named foo_n.html (n being the index of the chapter or
node), and the foo.html file contains the Top element.
Otherwise it creates only one file: foo.html
This is texi2html version 1.76, 3 February 2005.
Texi2html was originally written by is Lionel Cons, CERN IT/DIS/OSE,
Lionel.Cons@cern.ch. Over time, many other people around the net con-
tributed to this program. Its current maintainer is Olaf Bachmann,
