Reader Andreas Heil sent us this hack for the .pdf edition: To generate a copy of the book that enables you to open an interactive table of contents using a PDF reader, in scap.texi, replace "@shortcontents" with "@contents". (Please note that this will affect both the appearance of the table of contents and the page count.)
