INFO(1)                          User Commands                         INFO(1)

NAME
       info - read Info documents

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

DESCRIPTION
       Read documentation in Info format.

   Frequently-used options:
       -a, --all
              use all matching manuals

       -k, --apropos=STRING
              look up STRING in all indices of all manuals

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

       -f, --file=MANUAL
              specify Info manual 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=FILE
              output selected nodes to FILE

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

       --subnodes
              recursively output menu items

       -v, --variable VAR=VALUE
              assign VALUE to Info variable VAR

       --version
              display version information and exit

       -w, --where, --location
              print physical location of Info file

       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.

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