I am pleased to announce that, many years later, the famous Scsh Reference Manual has been converted to Texinfo. You can get your very own copy here: https://github.com/rmloveland/scsh-manual-texinfo.
This conversion represents quite a bit of work. Although I would have liked to do the conversion with a program, there was just too much of an impedance mismatch between the original LaTeX sources and Texinfo. Something tells me that’s why this conversion hasn’t happened until now. Whatever the reason, I’m glad to finally collect some internet cool points, even if it is almost twenty years later.
In the course of the conversion, I uncovered a number of small spelling, grammatical, and usage issues, which have now been fixed. To be clear: this is no criticism of the original authors. Several of them appear to be non-native English speakers. Their English is miles better than my German!
The resulting manual builds very nicely into HTML, PDF, or Info files. The PDF in particular is nice, since you get beautiful, clickable links everywhere! And the Info files are quite easy to install in your local Emacs.
Speaking of Emacs, if you like hacking Scsh from Emacs, try my geiser-scsh setup. Better yet, help me hack on it!
