I propose to do a pass on that:
 - apply this rule: no-$ for only input and $ to distinguish between
inputs and outputs.
 - backtick ` replaced by $(...) as discussed elsewhere
and then send a "Fix typo" patch.  And maybe add a bullet in the
Contributing Section.

WDYT?

All the best,
simon

If there is a way to mark a sentence to wrap it into a class, we could also do some CSS magic with :before. That will allow us to show the prompt while making it non-selectable I think, which is nice visually and for copy-pasting. I'm not a texinfo guru though, so I don't know if it is feasible.

Texinfo puts all examples inside div.example pre.example, but the
individual lines are not wrapped in spans, so we cannot style each line
individually.  A :before rule would thus only change the first line,
which is not enough.

We can wrap each line in an @example with @code and then style each of
these lines.

So we would do something like this:

--8<---------------cut here---------------start------------->8---
@example
@code{cd /tmp}
@code{tar --warning=no-timestamp -xf \
  /path/to/guix-binary-@value{VERSION}.x86_64-linux.tar.xz}
@code{mv var/guix /var/ && mv gnu /}
@end example
--8<---------------cut here---------------end--------------->8---

and then add this CSS rule:

--8<---------------cut here---------------start------------->8---
div.example pre.example code::before {
  content: "$ ";
}
--8<---------------cut here---------------end--------------->8---

In the manual sometimes the prompt is # (for root) and sometimes it is $
(when it’s any other user).  We cannot distinguish these cases unless we
abuse the Texinfo format by wrapping examples to allow for a more
explicit rule to match.

What about adding some more post-processing in doc/build.scm?  :-)

If we’re okay with wrapping individual lines in @code{…} that won’t be
necessary.  Having each logical line of code within @code results in

  <pre class="example">
    <code>this line</code>
    <code>that line</code>
  </pre>

and that’s something we *can* style with CSS.

But we can't differentiate root commands and user commands that way.

+1.

For examples w/ outputs, how about also removing the $ and commenting
the outputs with '# ', or '# > '?

… if that’s *really* necessary we can post-process in doc/build.scm, but
I think there’s little value in showing a different prompt.  While I
have seen it elsewhere, it’s not a universal convention to use “#” as a
root prompt and “$” for an unprivileged prompt.

If we want to clearly indicate that this is done by the root user I
suggest including “su -” at the top of the listing.

Adding @code to every single line sounds too intrusive to me.

May I chime in?

Do I get it right: you are suggesting to remove prompts from .texi and put them back in HTML output only — leaving other formats with not prompts?

And that is only to make them unselectable?  I do not quite understand, why this is needed at all (are there multiline examples in the manual, that expected to be blindly copypasted to terminal?), but in any case no hacks like ‘::before’ are required — ‘user-select: none’ is supported by all modern webengines (yet sometimes with prefix):

	  <style>
	    code .PS1 {
	        -webkit-user-select: none;
	        -moz-user-select: none; /* Not required since F***fox 69. */
	        user-select: none;
	    }
	  </style>
	
	  <pre><code><span class="PS1">$ </span>wget …/guix-install.sh
	<span class="PS1">$ </span>su -
	<span class="PS1"># </span>bash ./guix-install.sh
	  </code></pre>

This is good.

The only minor problem is that with Texinfo we cannot insert conditional
tags within the context of an example section, so we would have to
rewrite the HTML via post-processing.

Maybe that's what we want to do? If a line in <pre> satrts with "$ " or "# " wrap with a span. That way, we can make them unselectable in html, and they still appear in the info manual. We also keep the distinction between $ and #.

Oops!  (info "(texinfo) Defining Macros") recommends against using digits in macro names:

| For a macro to work consistently with TeX, MACRONAME must consist entirely of letters: no digits, hyphens, underscores, or other special characters.  So, we recommend using only letters.  However, 'makeinfo' will accept anything consisting of alphanumerics, and (except as the first character) '-'.

and rightfully so:

	make non-selectable-command-prompts-mwe.pdf
	‹…›
	./non-selectable-command-prompts-mwe.texi:13: Undefined control sequence.
	l.13 @PS
	        1{$ }wget …/guix-install.sh
	?

So s/PS1/prompt/g or whatever suits better.
