NAME
       info - read Info	documents

SYNOPSIS
       info [OPTION]...	[MENU-ITEM...]

	      look up STRING in	all indices of all manuals.

       -d, --directory=DIR
	      add DIR to INFOPATH.

       --dribble=FILENAME
	      remember user keystrokes in FILENAME.

       -f, --file=FILENAME
	      specify Info file	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=FILENAME
	      output selected nodes to FILENAME.

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

       --no-raw-escapes
	      output escapes as	literal	text.

       --restore=FILENAME
	      read initial keystrokes from FILENAME.

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

       --subnodes
	      recursively output menu items.

       -w, --where, --location

       --version

       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
