NAME

info - read Info documents  

SYNOPSIS

info [OPTION]... [MENU-ITEM...]  

DESCRIPTION

Read documentation in Info format.  

OPTIONS

--apropos=SUBJECT
look up SUBJECT in all indices of all manuals.
--directory=DIR
add DIR to INFOPATH.
--dribble=FILENAME
remember user keystrokes in FILENAME.
--file=FILENAME
specify Info file to visit.
--help
display this help and exit.
--index-search=STRING
go to node pointed by index entry STRING.
--node=NODENAME
specify nodes in first visited Info file.
--output=FILENAME
output selected nodes to FILENAME.
--raw-escapes
don't remove ANSI escapes from man pages.
--restore=FILENAME
read initial keystrokes from FILENAME.
--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.

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.  

EXAMPLES

info
show top-level dir menu
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 -f ./foo.info
show file ./foo.info, not searching dir
