In addition to the five major updating commands, Texinfo mode possesses several less frequently used updating commands:
@nodelines before the
@section, and other sectioning commands wherever they are missing throughout a region in a Texinfo file. With an argument (C-u as prefix argument, if interactive), the
texinfo-insert-node-linescommand not only inserts
@nodelines but also inserts the chapter or section titles as the names of the corresponding nodes. In addition, it inserts the titles as node names in pre-existing
@nodelines that lack names. Since node names should be more concise than section or chapter titles, you must manually edit node names so inserted. For example, the following marks a whole buffer as a region and inserts
@nodelines and titles throughout:
C-x h C-u M-x texinfo-insert-node-lines(Note that this command inserts titles as node names in
texinfo-start-menu-descriptioncommand (see section Inserting Frequently Used Commands) inserts titles as descriptions in menu entries, a different action. However, in both cases, you need to edit the inserted text.)
texinfo-multiple-files-updatecommand is described in the appendix on
@includefiles. See section
texinfo-indent-menu-descriptioncommand indents every description in every menu in the region. However, this command does not indent the second and subsequent lines of a multi-line description.
g* RETcommand lets you look through the file sequentially, so sequentially ordered nodes are not strictly necessary.) With an argument (prefix argument, if interactive), the
texinfo-sequential-node-updatecommand sequentially updates all the nodes in the region.
