       -o, --output=FILE
	      output selected nodes to FILE.

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

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

       --strict-node-location

       -x, --debug=NUMBER
	      set debugging level (-1 for all).

       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 re-
       maining arguments are treated as	the names of menu  items  relative  to
       the initial node	visited.

       For a summary of	key bindings, type H within Info.
