Overview of Texinfo
"Texinfo"(1) (Note: Overview-Footnotes) is a documentation system
that uses a single source file to produce both on-line information and
printed output. This means that instead of writing two different
documents, one for the on-line help or other on-line information and
the other for a typeset manual or other printed work, you need write
only one document. When the work is revised, you need revise only one
document. (You can read the on-line information, known as an "Info
file", with an Info documentation-reading program.)
