NAME

       ginstall-info - update info/dir entries

SYNOPSIS

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

DESCRIPTION

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

OPTIONS

       --debug
              report what is being done.

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

       --description=TEXT
              the  description  of  the  entry  is  TEXT;  used  with the --name option to become
              synonymous with the --entry option.

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

       --dry-run
              same as --test.

       --entry=TEXT
              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 determined

              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.

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

       --info-file=FILE
              specify  Info  file  to install in the directory; equivalent to using the INFO-FILE
              argument.

       --item=TEXT
              same as --entry=TEXT.

       --keep-old
              do not replace entries, or remove empty sections.

       --menuentry=TEXT
              same as --name=TEXT.

       --name=TEXT
              the name of the entry is TEXT; used with --description to  become  synonymous  with
              the --entry option.

       --no-indent
              do not format new entries in the DIR file.

       --quiet
              suppress warnings.

       --regex=R
              put  this  file's  entries  in  all  sections  that  match the regular expression R
              (ignoring case).

       --remove
              same as --delete.

       --remove-exactly
              only remove if the info file name matches exactly; suffixes such as .info  and  .gz
              are not ignored.

       --section=SEC
              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.

       --silent
              suppress warnings.

       --test suppress updating of DIR-FILE.

       --version
              display version information and exit.
