INSTALL-INFO(1)                           User Commands                           INSTALL-INFO(1)

NAME
       install-info - update info/dir entries

SYNOPSIS
       install-info [OPTION]... [INFO-FILE [DIR-FILE]]

DESCRIPTION
       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.

OPTIONS
       --add-once
              add only to first matching section, not all.

       --align=COL
              start description of new entries at column COL.

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

       --debug
              report what is being done.

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

       --defsection=TEXT
              like  --section, but only use TEXT if no sections are present in INFO-FILE (replac‐
              ing "Miscellaneous").

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

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

       --dry-run
              same as --test.

       --entry=TEXT
              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.

       --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.

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

       --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 (ignor‐
              ing 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;
              if nothing is available there, the --defsection value is used; if that is not spec‐
              ified, the final default is "Miscellaneous".

       --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.
