Howdy folks.  I am new to the list. I have wanted for a while to be able to write memos with texinfo.  However, I could not find anything on the web or in the distribution for doing this.   I also went through the help-texinfo archive but saw nothing, but got a few hints.   Below is my first attempt.  If you run texi2pdf on the included demo.texi file, which includes memodefs.texi, you should see what I mean.  Comments welcome.  — Matt

I successfully processed the files you sent.

You are free to program what you like in TeX and override internal
definitions in texinfo.tex. If you do this, you should probably keep
the version of texinfo.tex you used with your own definitions. You
shouldn't rely on your definitions working with any other version of

@title should only be within a @titlepage block.

You can avoid page breaks using the @heading command instead of
@section. See the attached file, which processes with texinfo.tex as
well as texi2any. It does not have any title page content, though.

Thanks.  What you provide goes pretty far in what I’d like to do.  It just doesn’t have numbered headings which is not a big deal.  I will probably start with that.   It would be nice to have seen your example in the user manual, for example.  FYI, I added a little to produce author name and date:
