Invoking install-info --------------------- `install-info' inserts menu entries from an Info file into the top-level `dir' file in the Info system (see the previous sections for an explanation of how the `dir' file works). It's most often run as part of software installation, or when constructing a `dir' file for all manuals on a system. Synopsis: install-info [OPTION]... [INFO-FILE [DIR-FILE]] If INFO-FILE or DIR-FILE are not specified, the options (described below) that define them must be. There are no compile-time defaults, and standard input is never used. `install-info' can read only one Info file and write only one `dir' file per invocation. If DIR-FILE (however specified) does not exist, `install-info' creates it if possible (with no entries). If any input file is compressed with `gzip' (*note Invoking gzip: (gzip)Invoking gzip.), `install-info' automatically uncompresses it for reading. And if DIR-FILE is compressed, `install-info' also automatically leaves it compressed after writing any changes. If DIR-FILE itself does not exist, `install-info' tries to open `DIR-FILE.gz'. Options: `--delete' Delete the entries in INFO-FILE from DIR-FILE. The file name in the entry in DIR-FILE must be INFO-FILE (except for an optional `.info' in either one). Don't insert any new entries. `--dir-file=NAME' `-d NAME' Specify file name of the Info directory file. This is equivalent to using the DIR-FILE argument. `--entry=TEXT' `-e TEXT' Insert TEXT as an Info directory entry; TEXT should have the form of an Info menu item line plus zero or more extra lines starting with whitespace. If you specify more than one entry, they are all added. If you don't specify any entries, they are determined from information in the Info file itself. `--help' `-h' Display a usage message listing basic usage and all available options, then exit successfully. `--info-file=FILE' `-i FILE' Specify Info file to install in the directory. Equivalent to using the INFO-FILE argument. `--info-dir=DIR' `-D DIR' Specify the directory where `dir' resides. Equivalent to `--dir-file=DIR/dir'. `--item=TEXT' Same as `--entry=TEXT'. An Info directory entry is actually a menu item. `--quiet' Suppress warnings. `--remove' `-r' Same as `--delete'. `--section=SEC' `-s SEC' Put this file's entries in section SEC of the directory. If you specify more than one section, all the entries are added in each of the sections. If you don't specify any sections, they are determined from information in the Info file itself. `--version' `-V' Display version information and exit successfully.
