Hint: Apart from the "Reference" (all the help pages), there is
      none, so it's understandable you can't find it.. 
Texinfo is a (very simple)  "dialect of"  TeX,
LaTeX is a different (much more sophisticated) "dialect".

BTW, I still read (and search!) these manuals in the *info*
     format via Emacs [C-h i ..] which (for me) is faster than
     anything else..
