INFO(5)                                                   INFO(5)


NAME
       info - readable online documentation

DESCRIPTION
       The  Info file format is an easily-parsable representation
       for online documents.  It can  be  read  by  emacs(1)  and
       info(1) among other programs.

       Info  files are usually created from texinfo(5) sources by
       makeinfo(1),  but  can  be  created  from  scratch  if  so
       desired.

       For a full description of the Texinfo language and associ-
       ated tools, please see the Texinfo manual (written in Tex-
       info itself).  Most likely, running this command from your
       shell:
              info texinfo
       or this key sequence from inside Emacs:
              M-x info RET m texinfo RET
       will get you there.

AVAILABILITY
       ftp://ftp.gnu.org/pub/gnu/texinfo-<version>.tar.gz
       or any GNU mirror site.

REPORTING BUGS
       Please send bug reports  to  bug-texinfoATgnu.org,  general
       questions and discussion to help-texinfoATgnu.org.
