DESCRIPTION

Read documentation in Info format.

OPTIONS

TagDescription

  look up STRING in all indices of all manuals.
-d, --directory=DIR
  add DIR to INFOPATH.
--dribble=FILENAME
  remember user keystrokes in FILENAME.
-f, --file=FILENAME
  specify Info file to visit.
-h, --help display this help and exit.
--index-search=STRING
  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
  output "raw" ANSI escapes (default).
--no-raw-escapes
  output escapes as literal text.
--restore=FILENAME
  read initial keystrokes from FILENAME.
-O, --show-options, --usage
  go to command-line options node.
--subnodes
  recursively output menu items.
-w, --where, --location
  print physical location of Info file.
--vi-keys use vi-like and less-like key bindings.
--version
  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

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
