Continuing latex-info.  That doc is wrong here in a number of ways, so have to be careful.

Added synopses and examples for all items.  Combine \clearpage and \cleardoublepage.  Adjust wording, including contrasting \newpage with \pagebreak and \clearpage.

Try to discourage people from using these (my students use them all the time, as do noobs on reddit). Add brief description of page breaking algorithm, and put in a caution in a couple of items to say "if you are doing this then you are probably not doing the right thing".


[N]ow, as throughout history, financial capacity and political perspicacity are inversely correlated. Long run salvation by men of business has never been highly regarded if it means disturbance of orderly life and convenience in the present. So inaction will be advocated in the present even though it means deep trouble in the future. Here, at least equally with communism, lies the threat to capitalism. It is what causes men who know that things are going quite wrong to say that things are fundamentally sound.
  -- John Kenneth Galbraith in The Great Crash, 1929
