Re: [help-texinfo] Preventing word split at the end of a line

    some words at the end of the line get split, 

Sure.  Hyphenation has been a standard part of Latin typesetting for

    Is there a way for texinfo to prevent such word splits, and instead
    adjust the whitespace automatically?

I think this should do it:

@end tex

The  result    will    have    much   more    spaced     out    words,
since      that's      what    you're           asking            for.

(Hopefully not as bad as that, though.)

To take it one step farther, if you don't care about justification
(=an even right-hand margin), you could also do

\global\rightskip = 0pt plus 20pt
@end tex

(adjust the value to taste) which will help TeX have less spacey lines.

It's possible that something in the document will reset one or both of
those parameters to the defaults, I can't say for sure.  Just have to
try it.

good luck,
