Since texinfo is kind of the help format for emacs, I hope the question is not too much off topic...

I'm starting to learn cmake and not having a texinfo documentation hurts a bit. Is there a way to convert the qt-help that's offered on the cmake page or any other solution?

Many thanks, Markus

    Although, this is not an answer to the direct question. The Emacs mode provided with CMake contains commands like cmake-help-command, cmake-help-variable etc. that can be used to retrieve information. – Lindydancer Oct 17 '17 at 7:22
  • Thanks, that does help.I fear that texinfo as a perfect help for emacs is dying :( – Markus Oct 24 '17 at 8:39

CMake help is built with Sphinx, which can generate Texinfo. You can build it yourself, and CMake 3.12.0 is going to build it given --sphinx-info configure flag or -DSPHINX_INFO CMake flag. Example cmake.info.
