       install-info - update info/dir entries

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

       Add or remove entries in INFO-FILE from the Info directory DIR-FILE.

              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

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

              same as --test.

              insert TEXT as an Info directory entry.  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  deter-

              from information in the Info file itself.

              When  removing, TEXT specifies the entry to remove.  TEXT is only removed as a last resort, if the entry
              as determined from the Info file is not present, and the basename of the Info file isn't found either.

       --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.

              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.
