You can write menus in Para mode and then use the `C-c C-p e' (para-menu-explode) to create new node and section headers at the end of the current node, one for each entry in the menu.
Each node name is the same as in the menu, and the section title following the node is the same as the descriptive string for the menu entry.
The command is:
C-c C-p e para-menu-explode
The section titles are automatically inserted one hierarchical level lower than the node preceding the menu.
If you want to create chapters following a menu written after a `Top' node, write an `@top' command after the `Top' node line, like this
@node Top @top
(except that in the source version of this file, two `@' are used together, so Emacs does not interpret the example as a node.)
The `@top' command is a command that produces results like `@unnumbered' in Texinfo mode but is understood by `para-menu-explode' to indicate the top node.
