NAME
       texinfo - software documentation system

DESCRIPTION
       Texinfo  is  a  documentation  system that uses a single source file to
       produce both online information and printed output.   It  is  primarily
       designed for writing software manuals.

       For  a  full  description of the Texinfo language and associated tools,
       please see the  Texinfo  manual  (written  in  Texinfo  itself).   Most
       likely, running this command from your shell:
       info texinfo
       or this key sequence from inside Emacs:
       M-x info RET m texinfo RET
       will get you there.

AVAILABILITY
       http://www.gnu.org/software/texinfo/
       or any GNU mirror site.

REPORTING BUGS
       Please  send  bug reports to bug-texinfo@gnu.org, general questions and
       discussion to help-texinfo@gnu.org.
