How to view texi files?

Postby minibuffer » Mon Mar 14, 2011 6:09 pm

I'd like to read the spanish translation of emacs-lisp-intro

emacs-lisp-intro-es.texi

http://mercurial.intuxication.org/hg/em ... 91208876da

After downloading and starting the texi file in emacs, what should I do to see it in readable form?

Make sure you're viewing them as texinfo files ("M-x texinfo-mode").
Display the structure menu ("C-c C-s").

These FreeBSD docs may be helpful.

If that doesn't look good, texi2html or texi2pdf may be more useful.

The mode seems to be the "texinfo" mode, emacs does it ok. But all I get is an unreadable html source view with all the html tags in between (or is it xml?)

Code: Select all
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Strict//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-strict.dtd">
<html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml" xml:lang="en-US" lang="en-US">
<head>
<link rel="icon" href="/hgweb/elisp-es/static/hgicon.png" type="image/png" />
<meta name="robots" content="index, nofollow"/>
...



When I press C-c C-s I get a message:
Code: Select all
Searched 1 buffer; no matches for `^\(?:\...


Can it be something wrong with the texi file, or? It is about 4MB, so if anyone wants to see it...

Now this begins to clarify. I stupidly tried to download the corresponding html-page instead of the gz-packet. No wonder why it looked so strange with all the tags inside it.

Hehe, I have done this before. I am glad I'm not the only one! :oops:
