CLEANUP-INFO(8)                 dpkg utilities                 CLEANUP-INFO(8)



NAME
       cleanup-info - clean up the mess that bogus install-info may have done

SYNOPSIS
       cleanup-info [--help] [--unsafe] [--version] [--] [<dirname>]

DESCRIPTION
       cleanup-info  is  a  Perl  script  that tries to clean up the mess that
       bogus install-info may have done. It gathers all sections with the same
       heading into a single one.  It tries to be smart about cases and trail-
       ing colon/spaces.
       Other clean-ups include removing of empty sections, and  squeezing  the
       blank lines (in entries part only).

       Order  of sections is preserved (the first encountered section counts).
       Order of entries within a section is preserved.

       Please be extremely careful when using this utility - it might  not  be
       100%  safe.  cleanup-info  tries to be careful with your info dir file,
       but only until it writes it. You should back the file up prior to using
       this.

OPTIONS
       --help Output the help screen and exit successfully.

       --unsafe
              Set some additional possibly useful options.
              Warning:  the  `--unsafe' option may garble an otherwise correct
              file!

       --version
              Output version and exit successfully.

FILES
       /usr/info/dir or <dirname>/dir
              The info directory file. The lock file is named the  same,  with
              ".lock" suffix.

BUGS
       Probably many.
