This project is part of the GNU Project.

Texinfo is the official documentation format of the GNU project.  It was invented by Richard Stallman and Bob Chassell many years ago, loosely based on Brian Reid's Scribe and other formatting languages of the time.  It is used by many non-GNU projects as well.

Texinfo uses a single source file to produce output in a number of formats, both online and printed (dvi, html, info, pdf, xml, etc.). This means that instead of writing different documents for online information and another for a printed manual, you need write only one document.  And when the work is revised, you need revise only that one document.  The Texinfo system is integrated well with GNU Emacs.

Please report any bugs via the mailing lists.
