Actually, I have a procmail recipe that does away with duplicate
messages, so I wouldn't have noticed.
Only problem I've had with pinfo is that I wasn't able to make work with
soft links - i.e. you have a two versions of gcc and gcc is a link to
the most current, pinfo burps a 'file not found' or something message.
But I didn't really research it much, I had too many problems manually
editing the info directory.
Otherwise, with its fairly 'intuitive' navigation model, I think it
makes reading the doc fo an extended period of time somewhat easier than
either info or man.
