info - read Info documents
info [OPTION]... [MENU-ITEM...]
Read documentation in Info format.
-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.
