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.

          remember user keystrokes in FILENAME.

   -f, --file=MANUAL
          specify Info manual 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=FILE
          output selected nodes to FILE.

   -R, --raw-escapes
          output "raw" ANSI escapes (default).

          output escapes as literal text.

          read initial keystrokes from FILE.

   -O, --show-options, --usage
          go to command-line options node.

          (for debugging) use Info file pointers as-is.

          recursively output menu items.

   -v, --variable VAR=VALUE
          assign VALUE to Info variable VAR.

          use vi-like and less-like key bindings.

          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.
