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 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.	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 base-
	      name 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 (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.

       --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.
