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.
