       info - read Info	documents

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

       Read documentation in Info format.

   Frequently-used options:
       -a, --all

       -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

	      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

       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.
