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
