NAME

cleanup-info - clean up the mess that bogus install-info may have done  

SYNOPSIS

cleanup-info [--help] [--unsafe] [--version] [--] [<dirname>]  

DESCRIPTION

cleanup-info is a Perl script that tries to clean up the mess that bogus install-info may have done. It gathers all sections with the same heading into a single one. It tries to be smart about cases and trailing colon/spaces.
Other clean-ups include removing of empty sections, and squeezing the blank lines (in entries part only).

Order of sections is preserved (the first encountered section counts). Order of entries within a section is preserved.

Please be extremely careful when using this utility - it might not be 100% safe. cleanup-info tries to be careful with your info dir file, but only until it writes it. You should back the file up prior to using this.  

OPTIONS

--help
Output the help screen and exit successfully.
--unsafe

Warning: the `--unsafe' option may garble an otherwise correct file!
--version

FILES

/usr/info/dir or <dirname>/dir
The info directory file. The lock file is named the same, with ".lock" suffix.
 

BUGS

Probably many.
