During trial installations of OF mapping package several texinfo errors are
reported along these lines:

C:\Users\philip\AppData\Local\Temp\octave-help-IEvLoR:126: misplaced {
C:\Users\philip\AppData\Local\Temp\octave-help-IEvLoR:126: misplaced }
C:\Users\philip\AppData\Local\Temp\octave-help-HwNhIo:167: @itemx not
meaningful inside address@hidden'
C:\Users\philip\AppData\Local\Temp\octave-help-zB6z2B:147: @itemx not
meaningful inside address@hidden'
C:\Users\philip\AppData\Local\Temp\octave-help-zB6z2B:165: @itemx not
meaningful inside address@hidden'
C:\Users\philip\AppData\Local\Temp\octave-help-bkikP8:141: @bye seen before
@end deftypefn
C:\Users\philip\AppData\Local\Temp\octave-help-JbGWy4:117: unknown command
For information about changes from previous versions of the mapping package,
run 'news mapping'.

Obviously I'd like to fix those errors but there's no clue as to which
function files the error messages belong, and the mentioned (temporary)
files disappear as soon as texinfo is done with the function files, i.e.
faster than I can lock them with e.g., a text editor.
IOW, these error messages are by no means helpful.

Any hints on how I can get more info about what texinfo errors to fix in
which function files?



I always have that issue as well and usually pull out the texinfo from the files into one big one and run makeinfo on it and then look at the line numbers from within that file to match it all up

octave-help-IEvLoR:126: misplaced {  => inst/earthRadius.m seealso is missing a @

octave-help-HwNhIo:167: @itemx not meaningful inside address@hidden' => inst/polybool.m itemx lines

octave-help-JbGWy4:117: unknown command `deftypefx' => inst/polyjoin.m, deftypefx should be deftypefnx

octave-help-bkikP8:141: @bye seen before @end deftypefn => inst/polycut.m has two deftypefn statements
