Texinfo-format manual for Jason Blevins' Emacs Markdown Mode

This project is an alternative manual for Jason Blevins' markdown-mode extension to Emacs in info format.

Status: 1st draft is complete, but not yet reviewed by another. Please comment. Thank you.

Texinfo, the documentation format of the Emacs manual and other GNU project documentation, while much more complex and arcane than markdown, excels at creating documentation for Emacs. In particular, it allows for extensive indexing, allowing the user to quickly find indexed information with the Emacs info reader by pressing 'i' while reading the file.

The Texinfo-format manual is compiled into info-format, which is compatible with both Emacs' info reader and the command line info command. Type $ make info.

The Makefile includes commands to install the .info file into the directory with your other emacs info files. You must update the file locations in the Makefile for your system. Type $ make install.

The Texinfo-format manual can also be compiled into HTML, PDF, ePub and other formats - even markdown. Type make or make help for options.
