@enumerate is like
@itemize except that the marks in
the left margin contain successive integers or letters.
(See section Making an Itemized List.)
@enumerate command at the beginning of a line.
The command does not require an argument, but accepts either a number or
a letter as an option.
Without an argument,
@enumerate starts the list
with the number 1. With a numeric argument, such as 3,
the command starts the list with that number.
With an upper or lower case letter, such as a or A,
the command starts the list with that letter.
Write the text of the enumerated list in the same way you write an
itemized list: put
@item on a line of its own before the start of
each paragraph that you want enumerated. Do not write any other text on
the line beginning with
You should put a blank line between entries in the list. This generally makes it easier to read the Info file.
Here is an example of
@enumerate without an argument:
@enumerate @item Underlying causes. @item Proximate causes. @end enumerate
Here is an example with an argument of 3:
@enumerate 3 @item Predisposing causes. @item Precipitating causes. @item Perpetuating causes. @end enumerate
Here is a brief summary of the alternatives. The summary is constructed
@enumerate with an argument of a.
@enumerateWithout an argument, produce a numbered list, starting with the number 1.
@enumerate positive-integerWith a (positive) numeric argument, start a numbered list with that number. You can use this to continue a list that you interrupted with other text.
@enumerate upper-case-letterWith an upper case letter as argument, start a list in which each item is marked by a letter, beginning with that upper case letter.
@enumerate lower-case-letterWith a lower case letter as argument, start a list in which each item is marked by a letter, beginning with that lower case letter.
You can also nest enumerated lists, as in an outline.
