10.16 @cartouche: Rounded Rectangles

In a printed manual, the @cartouche command draws a box with rounded corners around its contents. In HTML, a normal rectangle is drawn. @cartouche has no effect in Info output.

You can use this command to further highlight an example or quotation. For instance, you could write a manual in which one type of example is surrounded by a cartouche for emphasis.

For example,

@cartouche
@example
% pwd
/usr/local/share/emacs
@end example
@end cartouche

surrounds the two-line example with a box with rounded corners, in the printed manual.

The output from the example looks like this (if you’re reading this in Info, you’ll see the @cartouche had no effect):

% pwd
/usr/local/info

@cartouche also implies @group (see section @group: Prevent Page Breaks).
