NAME

info - read Info documents  

SYNOPSIS

info [OPTION]... [MENU-ITEM...]  

DESCRIPTION

Read documentation in Info format.  

OPTIONS

-a, --all
use all matching manuals.
-k, --apropos=STRING
look up STRING in all indices of all manuals.
-d, --directory=DIR
add DIR to INFOPATH.
--dribble=FILE
remember user keystrokes in FILENAME.
-f, --file=MANUAL
specify Info manual 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=FILE
output selected nodes to FILE.
-R, --raw-escapes
output "raw" ANSI escapes (default).
--no-raw-escapes
output escapes as literal text.
--restore=FILE
read initial keystrokes from FILE.
-O, --show-options, --usage
go to command-line options node.
--strict-node-location
(for debugging) use Info file pointers as-is.
--subnodes
recursively output menu items.
-v, --variable VAR=VALUE
assign VALUE to Info variable VAR.
--vi-keys
use vi-like and less-like key bindings.
--version
display version information and exit.
-w, --where, --location
print physical location of Info file.
-x, --debug=NUMBER
set debugging level (-1 for all).

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.

For a summary of key bindings, type h within Info.  

EXAMPLES

info
show top-level dir menu
info info
show the general manual for Info readers
info info-stnd
show the manual specific to this Info program
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 --subnodes -o out.txt emacs
dump entire manual to out.txt
info -f ./foo.info
show file ./foo.info, not searching dir
