Re: [help-texinfo] Tex From Texi

    when texi2dvi runs and converts a .texi file into a .tex file, it
    must first take the .texi file and create an intermediate .tex file.
    It must then be calling tex on the intermediate .tex file and once
    the .dvi is created, then it must somehow be deleting the
    intermediate file.

Well, if you run with --debug, the temporary files will not be deleted.
They'll be in /tmp/t2dNNNN, where NNNN was the pid.  (Well, $TMPDIR, not
/tmp, if you have that set.)

However, I don't think it works in the way you are thinking.
texinfo.tex implements Texinfo directly.  There is no translation to
.tex.  Temporary files are not always created -- only to handle things
like macro expansion and conditionals.
