C-h f texinfo-format-buffer

    texinfo-format-buffer is an autoloaded interactive Lisp function in

    (texinfo-format-buffer &optional NOSPLIT)

    Process the current buffer as texinfo code, into an Info file.
    The Info file output is generated in a buffer visiting the Info file
    name specified in the @setfilename command.

    Non-nil argument (prefix, if interactive) means don't make tag table
    and don't split the file if large.  You can use `Info-tagify' and
    `Info-split' to do these manually.

    Patrice> Yet another question, in the Texinfo manual it is said that
    Patrice>  You can run Info-validate only on a single Info file that has a 
tag table.
    Patrice>  The command will not work on the indirect subfiles that are

    Patrice> Is it still true?  Or has Info-validate been extended to work on 
    Patrice> Info files?

Thatʼs still true, Info-validate only looks at the current buffer.
