NAME    [Toc]    [Back]

DESCRIPTION    [Toc]    [Back]

       cleanup-info  is  a  Perl  script  that tries to clean up the mess that
       bogus install-info may have done. It gathers all sections with the same
       heading into a single one.  It tries to be smart about cases and trailing
       Other clean-ups include removing of empty sections, and	squeezing  the
       blank lines (in entries part only).
