merge-info, merge and unmerge GNU Info index files
merge-info [OPTION ...] FILE FILE
merge-info can merge and unmerge the GNU Info index files named 'dir'. These files are usally created by install-info at install time of an application, or automatically generated by a mkinfodir script. If you are installing 2 packages at two different locations, two different 'dir' files are created. Eg.: One in /stow/foo/usr/local/info/dir and one in /stow/bar/usr/local/info/dir This is the common case if you are using a tool like xstow(1). merge-info can handle this and can merge both 'dir' files and creates a new 'dir' file.
merge-info [OPTION ...] FILE FILE Merge two files: merge-info /stow/foo/info/dir /stow/bar/info/dir Remove the content of a 'dir' file from another 'dir' file merge-info -u /stow/foo/info/dir /stow/bar/info/dir
-dl -debug-level INT Set's the debug level. An unsigned integer is accepted. The default value is 0. -h -help Shows a help screen. -V -Version Displays the verion number of the XStow package. merge-info is shipped with xstow(1). -u -unmerge Unmerge instead of merge. Note: It is not possible splitting up one 'dir' file into two. But removing the content of one 'dir' file from the other one is possible. -o -outfile Write the resulting 'dir' file not to stdout. Write it to a given file. Since merge- info does not open this outfile until all the merging or unmerging stuff is done it is allowed that the outfile is one the source files. eg.: merge-info -u foo/info/dir bar/info/dir -o foo/info/dir -d -duplicate Remove duplicate entries. When merging 2 files an entry can appear in more than one section. If you do not wan't this, use this option.
XSTOW_DEBUG_LEVEL Same as the -debug-level option.
