NAME

info - read Info documents  

SYNOPSIS

info [OPTION]... [MENU-ITEM...]  

DESCRIPTION

Read documentation in Info format.  

OPTIONS

-k, --apropos=STRING
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.
--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.

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.
