SYNOPSIS

              for the output document (default C).

       --force
              preserve output even if errors.

       --help display this help and exit.

       --no-validate
              suppress node cross-reference validation.

       --no-warn
              suppress warnings (but not errors).

       -v, --verbose
              explain what is being done.

       --version
              display version information and exit.

   Output format selection (default is to produce Info):
       --docbook
              output Docbook XML rather than Info.

       --html output HTML rather than Info.

       --xml  output Texinfo XML rather than Info.

   General output options:
       -E, --macro-expand=FILE
              output macro-expanded source to FILE, ignoring any @setfilename.

       --no-headers
              suppress node separators, Node: lines, and menus from Info output (thus producing plain  text)  or  from
              HTML (thus producing shorter output); also, write to standard output by default.

       --no-split
              suppress the splitting of Info or HTML output, generate only one output file.

       --number-sections
              output chapter and sectioning numbers.

       --footnote-style=STYLE
              output footnotes in Info according to STYLE: 'separate' to put them in their own node; 'end' to put them
              at the end of the node, in which they are defined (this is the default).

       --paragraph-indent=VAL
              indent Info paragraphs by VAL spaces (default 3).  If VAL is 'none', do not indent; if  VAL  is  'asis',
              preserve existing indentation.

       --split-size=NUM
              split Info files at size NUM (default 300000).

   Options for HTML:

   Input file options:
       --commands-in-node-names
              allow @ commands in node names.

       -D VAR define the variable VAR, as with @set.

       -I DIR append DIR to the @include search path.

       -P DIR prepend DIR to the @include search path.

       -U VAR undefine the variable VAR, as with @clear.

   Conditional processing in input:
       --ifdocbook
              process @ifdocbook and @docbook even if not generating Docbook.

       --ifhtml
              process @ifhtml and @html even if not generating HTML.

       --ifinfo
              process @ifinfo even if not generating Info.

       --ifplaintext
              process @ifplaintext even if not generating plain text.

       --iftex
              process @iftex and @tex; implies --no-split.

       --ifxml
              process @ifxml and @xml.

       --no-ifdocbook
              do not process @ifdocbook and @docbook text.

              do not process @iftex and @tex text.

       --no-ifxml
              do not process @ifxml and @xml text.

       Also, for the --no-ifFORMAT options, do process @ifnotFORMAT text.

       The  defaults  for  the @if... conditionals depend on the output format: if generating HTML, --ifhtml is on and
       the others are off; if generating Info, --ifinfo is on and the  others  are  off;  if  generating  plain  text,
       --ifplaintext is on and the others are off; if generating XML, --ifxml is on and the others are off.
