Cannot generate a double-sided document from a .texi file
Last modified: 2006-01-15 08:10:09 EST
I'm trying to generate the manual for Gnuplot-3.7.1.
I have downloaded the source, unpacked it and I went to the docs directory.
From there I type (according to README)
make tex generates from gnuplot.texi, gnuplot.tex
make dvi generates from gnuplot.tex, gnuplot.dvi
and so on.
The problem is that accorded to the header of gnuplot.texi, I should obtain
a double-sided document when I only get a single-sided one (check the info
pages on texinfo for more information):
\input texinfo @c -*-texinfo-*-
@c %**start of header
@settitle Gnuplot: An Interactive Plotting Program
@c %**end of header
the @setchapternewpage odd command sets double-side and new chapter on odd
pages. So here I think is a bug or a general setting of RH6.2 that I have
Thanks in advance for any help.
Looking into it
The output is double-sided at least with texinfo-4.8-7.1. Note that (make dvi)
uses latex, not texinfo.
