install-info(1)                  User Commands                 install-info(1)


       install-info - update info/dir entries


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


       Install or delete dir entries from INFO-FILE in the Info directory file


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

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

              insert TEXT as an Info directory entry.  TEXT  should  have  the
              form  of  an  Info  menu item line plus zero or more extra lines
              starting with whitespace.  If you specify more than  one  entry,
              they  are all added.  If you don't specify any entries, they are
              determined from information in the Info file itself.

       --help display this help and exit.

              specify Info file to install in the directory.  This is  equiva-
              lent to using the INFO-FILE argument.

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

              same  as  --entry  TEXT.   An Info directory entry is actually a
              menu item.

              suppress warnings.

              same as --delete.

              put this file's 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.

              display version information and exit.
