INFO(5)                       File Formats Manual                      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  pro-
       grams.

       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  associated  tools,
       please  see  the  Texinfo  manual  (written  in  Texinfo 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

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