#2232 closed enhancement (fixed)


Reported by: randy@… Owned by: Matthew Burgess
Priority: low Milestone: 7.0
Component: Book Version: SVN
Severity: minor Keywords:


The MPFR package has texinfo files that can be used to create documentation. Because the TexInfo package is installed in Chapter 5, the necessary tools to build HTML and text docs are available. The following HTML files can be created and installed. The text files are not shown here, but they would be the same docs, only in pure text.

ls  /usr/share/doc/mpfr*
Advanced-Functions.html                                Initialization-Functions.html
Assignment-Functions.html                              Input-and-Output-Functions.html
Basic-Arithmetic-Functions.html                        Installing-MPFR.html
Combined-Initialization-and-Assignment-Functions.html  Integer-Related-Functions.html
Comparison-Functions.html                              Internals.html
Compatibility-with-MPF.html                            Introduction-to-MPFR.html
Concept-Index.html                                     MPFR-Basics.html
Contributors.html                                      MPFR-Interface.html
Conversion-Functions.html                              Miscellaneous-Functions.html
Copying.html                                           References.html
Custom-Interface.html                                  Reporting-Bugs.html
Exception-Related-Functions.html                       Rounding-Mode-Related-Functions.html
FAQ.html                                               Special-Functions.html
Function-Index.html                                    index.html

Very minor issue, but perhaps one day we can add this in. Marking as low and for future.

Hi Randy,

'make install-html' has an annoying side-effect of putting things in /usr/share/doc/mpfr-2.3.2/mpfr.html/*.html

I've come up with the following:

make html &&
mkdir -p /usr/share/doc/mpfr-2.3.2 &&
find . -name \*.html -exec cp \{} /usr/share/doc/mpfr-2.3.2

How do you generate the .txt files from the sources in the tarball? I couldn't find a suitable Makefile target. Do you manually invoke texinfo?
