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.

       --version
              display version information and exit.
