texinfo / texi2pdf question


All I have a texi source file which converts nicely into info and html using makeinfo. However when I try to run texi2pdf on the texi source, every section that is contained within a @code{} command causes an 'Underfull \hbox' error... how do I fix this?

Thanks,
jpbarto

underful hbox is not fatal error. It just says that some of the lines are not long enough to span the whole paper so it won't necessarily look good.

Thanks for the answer. This next question may be coming out because I no next to nothing about printing (in terms of books, etc)... but why would it be a big deal if a line did not span the width of a page?

In normal text it generally doesn't look good if some of the lines are not long enough. The text looks jumpy, unaligned and harder to focus on.

In case of code -blocks, this jumpines is intentional and meant to draw attention
(eg. compare correctly idented code to unidented code; there is a huge difference in understandability).

thanks again for the reply. I was using the @code command... is that not right? Perhaps it was complaining about another command I used, I'll have to double check as it has been a little while (2 weeks) since I was working with the docs.
