pod2texi - convert Pod to Texinfo
pod2texi [OPTION]... POD...
Translate Pod file(s) to Texinfo. There are two basic modes of
operation. First, by default, each pod is translated to a standalone
Second, if "--base-level" is set higher than 0, each pod is translated
to a file suitable for @include, and one more file with all the
@includes is generated, intended to be @included in turn within a hand-
written top-level file.
Use appendix sectioning commands (@appendix, ...) instead of the
default numbered sectioning Texinfo @-commands (@chapter, @section,
Sets the level of the "head1" commands. It may be an integer or a
Texinfo sectioning command (without the "@"): 1 corresponds to the
@chapter/@unnumbered level, 2 to the @section level, and so on.
The default is 0, meaning that "head1" commands are still output as
chapters, but the output is arranged as a standalone manual.
If the level is not 0, the pod file is rendered as a fragment of a
Texinfo manual suitable for @include. In this case, each pod file
has an additional sectioning command covering the entire file, one
level above the "--base-level" value. Therefore, to make each pod
file a chapter in a large manual, you should use "section" as the
For an example of making Texinfo out of the Perl documentation
itself, see "contrib/perldoc-all" in the Texinfo source
distribution, with output available at

Name for the first manual, or the main manual if there is a main
manual. Default is to write to standard output.
Use anchors for sections instead of nodes.
Do not fill sectioning gaps with empty @unnumbered files.
Ordinarily, it's good to keep the sectioning hierarchy intact.
Insert STR as top boilerplate before includes. The default is a
minimal beginning for a Texinfo document, and sets
@documentencoding to "utf-8" (because the output is written that
