pod2texi - convert Pod to Texinfo
pod2texi [OPTION]... POD...
Translate Pod file(s) to Texinfo. There are two basic modes of operation. First,
by default, each pod is translated to a standalone Texinfo manual.
Second, if "--base-level" is set
higher than 0, each pod is translated to a file suitable for
@include, and one more file with all the
@includes is generated, intended to be
@included in turn within a hand-written top-level

- Use appendix sectioning commands (@appendix, ...)
instead of the default numbered sectioning Texinfo @-commands
- Sets the level of the "head1" commands.
It may be an integer or a Texinfo sectioning command (without the
"@"): 1 corresponds to the
level, 2 to the @section level, and so on. The
default is 0, meaning that "head1"
commands are still output as chapters, but the output is arranged as a
If the level is not 0, the pod file is rendered as a fragment
of a Texinfo manual suitable for @include. In
this case, each pod file has an additional sectioning command covering
the entire file, one level above the
"--base-level" value. Therefore, to
make each pod file a chapter in a large manual, you should use
"section" as the base level.
For an example of making Texinfo out of the Perl documentation
itself, see "contrib/perldoc-all" in
the Texinfo source distribution, with output available at
- Set debugging level to NUM.
- Display help and exit.
- Name for the first manual, or the main manual if there is a main manual.
Default is to write to standard output.
- Use anchors for sections instead of nodes.
- Do not fill sectioning gaps with empty @unnumbered
files. Ordinarily, it's good to keep the sectioning hierarchy intact.
- Insert STR as top boilerplate before includes. The default is a
minimal beginning for a Texinfo document, and sets
"utf-8" (because the output is written
- If there is a main manual with include files (each corresponding to an
input pod file), then those include files are put in directory
- Use unnumbered sectioning commands (@unnumbered,
...) instead of the default numbered sectioning Texinfo @-commands
- Name of the @top element for the main manual. May
contain Texinfo code.
- Display version information and exit.
