NAME
       info - read Info documents

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

DESCRIPTION
       Read documentation in Info format.

OPTIONS
       --apropos=STRING
              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
              print physical location of Info file.

       --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
