       ginstall-info - update info/dir entries

       ginstall-info [OPTION]... [INFO-FILE [DIR-FILE]]

       Add  or	remove	entries in INFO-FILE from the Info directory DIR-FILE.
       INFO-FILE  and  DIR-FILE	 are  required	unless	the   --info-file   or
       --dir-file (or --info-dir) options are given, respectively.

	      add only to first matching section, not all.

	      start description of new entries at column COL.

	      format  second and subsequent description lines to start at col‐
	      umn COL.

	      report what is being done.

	      delete existing  entries	for  INFO-FILE	from  DIR-FILE;	 don't
	      insert any new entries.

	      the  description	of  the	 entry	is  TEXT; used with the --name
	      option to become synonymous with the --entry option.

	      specify file name of Info directory file;	 equivalent  to	 using
	      the DIR-FILE argument.

	      same as --test.

	      insert  TEXT  as	an Info directory entry, overriding any corre‐
	      sponding entry from DIR-FILE.  TEXT is written as an  Info  menu
	      item line followed

	      by zero or more extra lines starting with whitespace.

	      If you specify more than one entry, all are added.  If you don't
	      specify any entries, they are determined

	      from information in the Info file itself.

       --help display this help and exit.

	      same as --dir-file=DIR/dir.

	      specify Info file to install in  the  directory;	equivalent  to
	      using the INFO-FILE argument.

	      same as --entry=TEXT.

	      do not replace entries, or remove empty sections.

       --maxwidth, --max-width=COL
	      wrap description at column COL.

	      same as --name=TEXT.

	      the name of the entry is TEXT; used with --description to become
	      synonymous with the --entry option.

	      do not format new entries in the DIR file.

	      suppress warnings.

	      put this file's entries in all sections that match  the  regular
	      expression R (ignoring case).

	      same as --delete.

	      only remove if the info file name matches exactly; suffixes such
	      as .info and .gz are not ignored.

	      put entries in section SEC of the	 directory.   If  you  specify
	      more than one section, all the entries

	      are added in each of the sections.

	      If you don't specify any sections, they are determined

	      from information in the Info file itself.

       --section R SEC
	      equivalent to --regex=R --section=SEC --add-once.

	      suppress warnings.

       --test suppress updating of DIR-FILE.

	      display version information and exit.
