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 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.
