NAME
       info - read Info documents

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

DESCRIPTION
       Read documentation in Info format.

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.

       --dribble=FILE
	      remember user keystrokes in FILENAME.

       -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.

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

       --no-raw-escapes
	      output escapes as literal text.

       --restore=FILE
	      read initial keystrokes from FILE.

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

       --strict-node-location
	      (for debugging) use Info file pointers as-is.

       --subnodes
	      recursively output menu items.

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

       --vi-keys
	      use vi-like and less-like key bindings.

       --version
	      display version information and exit.

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

       -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
       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.

EXAMPLES
       info   show top-level dir menu

       info info

       info info-stnd

       info --show-options emacs

	      dump entire manual to out.txt
