       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.  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.

              like  --section,  but  only  use  TEXT  if  no  sections  are  present in INFO-FILE
              (replacing "Miscellaneous").

              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;
              if  nothing  is  available  there,  the  --defsection value is used; if that is not
              specified, the final default is "Miscellaneous".

       --section R SEC
              equivalent to --regex=R --section=SEC --add-once.

              suppress warnings.

       --test suppress updating of DIR-FILE.

              display version information and exit.
