       einfo - look up general NCBI Entrez database information


       einfo (edirect -info) [-help] [-db name] [-dbs] [-fields] [-links]


       einfo  looks  up  general information about either an individual NCBI Entrez database with
       which other edirect(1) commands can work or the set of available databases as a whole.

       einfo is also the name of an tool for accessing contents of local EPUB files.  To  resolve
       this  ambiguity,  Debian  systems  with  both  EPUB  utilities and Entrez Direct installed
       arrange for the EPUB-related executable to have the name einfo.epub(1) and for einfo to be
       a wrapper script that examines its usage and proceeds to run whichever of edirect -info or
       einfo.epub(1) looks like a better fit.
