## TeX Formatting Requirements Summary

Every Texinfo file that is to be input to TeX must begin with a \input command and must contain an @setfilename command and an @settitle command:

\input texinfo
@setfilename arg-not-used-by-TeX
@settitle name-of-manual

The first command instructs TeX to load the macros it needs to process a Texinfo file, the second command opens auxiliary files, and the third specifies the title of printed manual.

Every Texinfo file must end with a line that terminates TeX processing and forces out unfinished pages:

@bye

Strictly speaking, these four lines are all a Texinfo file needs for TeX, besides the body. (The @setfilename line is the only line that a Texinfo file needs for Info formatting.)

Usually, the file's first line contains an `@c -*-texinfo-*-' comment that causes Emacs to switch to Texinfo mode when you edit the file. In addition, the beginning usually includes an @setchapternewpage command, a title page, a copyright page, and permissions. Besides an @bye, the end of a file usually includes indices and a table of contents.
