5 Chapter Structuring

Texinfo’s chapter structuring commands (could more generally be called sectioning structuring, but that is awkward) divide a document into a hierarchy of chapters, sections, subsections, and subsubsections. These commands generate large headings in the text, like the one above. They also provide information for generating the table of contents (see section Generating a Table of Contents), and for implicitly determining node pointers, as is recommended (see section makeinfo Pointer Creation).

The chapter structuring commands do not create a node structure, so normally you put an @node command immediately before each chapter structuring command (see section Nodes). The only time you are likely to use the chapter structuring commands without also using nodes is if you are writing a document that contains no cross references and will only be printed, not transformed into Info, HTML, or other formats.
