Here's how I use info:
info ______ (to bring up whatever I want)
Control-s ____ (to locate stuff more specifically)
control-s again to go to next instance
escape to stop searching (or just about any nonprintable key)
space (to scroll)
pageup (to go back within a page)
l (to go back if I've scrolled across a page boundary)
arrow keys to go to a specific reference
enter to follow a reference I'm on
q to quit
Ok, sometimes I use tab, which means roughly the same thing as
it does in lynx...
