CTAN update: latex2e-help-texinfo
We have updated the unofficial LaTeX2e reference manual. The easiest way to view the manual is by visiting: https://latexref.xyz It is available in TeX distributions and on CTAN at: https://ctan.org/pkg/latex2e-help-texinfo Since the last update there have been many changes. Among them: * Entries for \openin, \openout, \message, \write, \write18. * Section on fontenc. * Section on math delimiters. * Describe -output-directory option. * Section on xr. * Section on expressions. * Entry on \contentsline. There is a separately maintained French translation of this manual; see https://ctan.org/pkg/latex2e-help-texinfo-fr. There is also a Spanish translation, which is in great need of a volunteer to bring it up to date. If you are interested, please contact us. Suggestions, bug reports, all discussion welcome. Mailing list details are at https://lists.tug.org/latexrefman. Contributions of any kind are very welcome. Some ideas are at https://latexref.xyz/dev/writing.html. If you'd like to host a mirror of the manual, whether to have a convenient local reference or to offer a service to the community, instructions are at https://latexref.xyz/dev/mirroring.html.
The package’s Catalogue entry can be viewed at https://ctan.org/pkg/latex2e-help-texinfo The package’s files themselves can be inspected at https://mirrors.ctan.org/info/latex2e-help-texinfo/

latex2e-help-texinfo – Unofficial reference manual covering LaTeX2ε
The manual is provided as Texinfo source (which was originally derived from the VMS help file in the DECUS TeX distribution of 1990, with many subsequent changes). This is a collaborative development, and details of getting involved are to be found on the package home page. A French translation is available as a separate package.
All the other formats in the distribution are derived from the Texinfo source, as usual.
