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'

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
