>From my previous message:

   \verb apparently seems to be a LaTeX thing, not a TeX thing.  (I got
   the same "Undefined control sequence." error in TeX, whereas it worked
   perfectly in LaTeX.)  Texinfo uses TeX, not LaTeX.  However, according
   to the Texinfo manual, it should have worked regardless.  I believe
   that the fact that it did not work is a bug in Texinfo (unless I am
   misunderstanding something).

I changed my mind on this, since @verb in isolation seems to work
perfectly, in all situations you describe.  It apparently is not
supposed to be called from within other environments such as @code.

So the problem seems to be confined to @defvr.


@defvar address@hidden|--|}index-alist

It seems that address@hidden|--|}index-alist' sometimes get treated as
implicitly inside an @code (@verb does not work) and sometimes not
(@verb works).  Of course, this is inconsistent.
