Re: Hardcopy of info subtree?

Hi again Jill,

    Is there a simple way to get a hardcopy of an info subtree (i.e.
    a node plus all of its children)?  

It's basically just a text file, so a simple zcat* | lpr would
mostly suffice.  The character CTRL-_ is used, if you think your printer
won't like it you can get rid of it with tr.  You might want to get rid
of the CTRL-L's, too, unless you like one node per piece of paper.

However, I think you'll find the TeX output much shorter and easier to
read, so I don't recommend printing the info files.

    Is there a simple way to get the typeset version?

Yes, find.texi should be included in the source package, or you can get
it from  Unpack it, and in the doc
subdirectory, just run texi2dvi find.texi.  You'll end up with a dvi
file, which you can print with lpr -d (if your lpr is set up for that),
or dvips find.dvi, or whatever.  

Or you can run texi2pdf to get a PDF file, if you like that better.

Having typed all that, I forgot that it's already premade in various
formats and available online (as all GNU manuals should be).
See the links on
(no pdf though)
