30Bug reports:
31 please include enough information for the maintainers to reproduce the
32 problem. Generally speaking, that means:
33- the contents of any input files necessary to reproduce the bug (crucial!).
34- a description of the problem and any samples of the erroneous output.
35- the version number of Texinfo and the program(s) involved (use --version).
36- hardware, operating system, and compiler versions (uname -a).
37- unusual options you gave to configure, if any (see config.status).
38- anything else that you think would be helpful.
39
40Patches are most welcome; if possible, please make them with diff -c and
41include ChangeLog entries.
42
43When sending email, please do not encode or split the messages in any
44way if at all possible; it's easier to deal with one large message than
45many small ones. GNU shar (http://www.gnu.org/software/sharutils/) is a
46convenient way of packaging multiple and/or binary files for email.
47
48See README.dev for information on the Texinfo development environment --
49any interested parties are welcome. If you're a programmer and wish to
50contribute, this should get you started. And if you're not a
51programmer, you can still make significant contributions by writing test
52cases, checking the documentation against the implementation, etc.

57
58 INSTALL Texinfo-specific installation notes.

64Texinfo documentation files (in ./doc):
65 texinfo.txi Describes the Texinfo language and many
66 of the associated tools. It tells how
67 to use Texinfo to write documentation,
68 how to use Texinfo mode in GNU Emacs,
69 TeX, makeinfo, and the Emacs Lisp
70 Texinfo formatting commands.
71
72 info.texi This manual tells you how to use
73 Info. This document also comes as part of
74 GNU Emacs. If you do not have Emacs,
75 you can format this Texinfo source
76 file with makeinfo or TeX and then
77 read the resulting Info file with the
78 standalone Info reader that is part of
79 this distribution.
80
81 info-stnd.texi This manual tells you how to use
82 the standalone GNU Info reader that is
83 included in this distribution as C
84 source (./info).

86Printing related files:
87 doc/texinfo.tex This TeX definitions file tells
88 the TeX program how to typeset a
89 Texinfo file into a DVI file ready for
90 printing.
91
92 util/texindex.c This file contains the source for
93 the `texindex' program that generates
94 sorted indices used by TeX when
95 typesetting a file for printing.
96
97 util/texi2dvi This is a shell script for
98 producing an indexed DVI file using
99 TeX and texindex.

101Source files for standalone C programs:
102 ./lib
103 ./makeinfo
104 ./info
