Texinfo files start with at least three lines that provide Texinfo translators with necessary information. These are the ```\input texinfo``` line, the `@settitle` line, and the `@setfilename` line.

Also, if you want to format just part of the Texinfo file in Emacs, you must write the `@settitle` and `@setfilename` lines between start-of-header and end-of-header lines. These start- and end-of-header lines are optional, but they do no harm, so you might as well always include them.

Any command that affects document formatting as a whole makes sense to include in the header. `@synindex` (see section `@synindex`: Combining indices), for instance, is another command often included in the header.

Thus, the beginning of a Texinfo file generally looks approximately like this:

```\input texinfo   @c -*-texinfo-*-
@setfilename sample.info
@settitle Sample Manual 1.0
