       ginstall-info - update info/dir entries


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


       Add  or  remove  entries  in  INFO-FILE  from  the Info directory DIR-FILE.  INFO-FILE and
       DIR-FILE are required unless the --info-file or --dir-file  (or  --info-dir)  options  are
       given, respectively.


              add only to first matching section, not all.

              start description of new entries at column COL.

              format second and subsequent description lines to start at column COL.

              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 option.

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

              same as --test.

              insert  TEXT  as  an  Info directory entry, overriding any corresponding entry from
              DIR-FILE.  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.

       --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

              same as --entry=TEXT.

              do not replace entries, or remove empty sections.

       --maxwidth, --max-width=COL
              wrap description at column COL.

              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.
