NAME    [Toc]    [Back]

       info - read Info documents

SYNOPSIS    [Toc]    [Back]

       info [OPTION]... [MENU-ITEM...]

DESCRIPTION    [Toc]    [Back]

       Read documentation in Info format.

OPTIONS    [Toc]    [Back]

	      look up STRING in all indices of all manuals.

       -d, --directory=DIR
	      add DIR to INFOPATH.

	      remember user keystrokes in FILENAME.

       -f, --file=FILENAME
	      specify Info file to visit.

       -h, --help
	      display this help and exit.

	      go to node pointed by index entry STRING.

       -n, --node=NODENAME
	      specify nodes in first visited Info file.

       -o, --output=FILENAME
	      output selected nodes to FILENAME.

       -R, --raw-escapes
	      don't remove ANSI escapes from man pages.

	      read initial keystrokes from FILENAME.

       -O, --show-options, --usage
	      go to command-line options node.

	      recursively output menu items.

	      use vi-like and less-like key bindings.

	      display version information and exit.

       The  first  non-option argument, if present, is the menu entry to start
       from; it is searched for in all `dir' files along INFOPATH.  If	it  is
       not  present,  info  merges  all `dir' files and shows the result.  Any
       remaining arguments are treated as the names of menu items relative  to
       the initial node visited.

EXAMPLES    [Toc]    [Back]

       info   show top-level dir menu

       info emacs
	      start at emacs node from top-level dir

       info emacs buffers
	      start at buffers node within emacs manual

       info --show-options emacs
	      start at node with emacs' command line options

       info -f ./foo.info
	      show file ./foo.info, not searching dir
