DESCRIPTION

OPTIONS
       --help Produces a short help message.

       -/+balloons
	      Turns on/off balloonhelp for the buttons.	Default	is on.

       -/+scrollthrough
	      Turns  on/off  jumping  to the successor node when attempting to
	      scroll at	the bottom of a	node. Default is on.

       -/+pagesep
	      Turns on/off inserting of	page separators	when  scrolling	 page-
	      wise.  Default is	on.

       -/+showdir
	      Turns  on/off  showing  the  full	pathname of the	displayed info
	      file. Default is off.

       -linklook type
	      Specifies	how to display	cross  references  and	menu  entries.
	      type  must be one	of "color", "font", or "underline". Default is
	      "color" on color displays	and "underline"	 on  black  and	 white
	      displays.

       -highlight type
	      Specifies	 how to	highlight links.  type must be one of "color",
	      "inverse", or "underline". Default is "inverse".

       -searchlook type
	      Specifies	how to highlight matches after searches.  type must be
	      one of "color", "inverse", or "underline". Default is "inverse".

       -geometry geom
	      Geometry of the window.  geom must be of the form	XxY+A+B	or XxY
	      or +A+B, where X and Y specify the size of the window in charac-
	      ters and A and B the location in pixels.

       -display	display
	      X	display	to use for the tkinfo window.

       -iconic
	      Start the	first window in	iconic state.

       -dir dir
	      Specifies	 directories  to search	for info files,	in addition to
	      those contained in the INFOPATH environment variable.   The  di-
	      rectories	specified with -dir will be searched first, in the or-
	      der given.

       node   Specifies	the info node to visit initially. Possible formats for
	      node are:
		"(filename)nodename"  most general
		"(filename)"	      equivalent to (filename)Top
		"filename"	      equivalent to (filename).

       If  filename  is	 not absolute, the info	directories (from INFOPATH and
       -dir) will be searched. If filename cannot be  found,  its  lower  case
       version will be tried.

       An alternative way to specify the node "(FILE)NODE" is with "-file FILE
       -node NODE".

       If no node is given, the	default	node "(dir)Top"	is used.

ENVIRONMENT
       INFOPATH
	      A	colon (``:'') separated	list of	directories to search for info
	      files.  More  directories	can be given with -dir options,	above.
	      If not set, tkinfo will try various  standard  directories  that
	      should be	ok for most systems.

       INFOSUFFIX
	      A	 colon	separated  list	of file	suffixes to try	when searching
	      for an info file.	If not set, tkinfo will	try the	 suffixes  "",
	      ".info",	and "-info". In	addition, tkinfo will always automati-
	      cally try	the suffixes .Z, .z, and .gz and deal  with  the  com-
	      pressed file if necessary.

SEE ALSO
       The program documents itself in the info	format:	start it and type 'h'.
       Customization via X resources is	also documented	in that	way.
