NAME
       info - read Info documents

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

DESCRIPTION
       Read documentation in Info format.

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

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

              remember user keystrokes in FILENAME.

       -f, --file=FILENAME
              specify Info file 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=FILENAME
              output selected nodes to FILENAME.

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

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

       --restore=FILENAME
              read initial keystrokes from FILENAME.

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

       --subnodes
              recursively output menu items.

       --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.

       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.
