Here's a manual page for the cleanup-info script.

.TH CLEANUP-INFO 8 "November 1999" "Debian Project" "dpkg utilities"
cleanup-info \- clean up the mess that bogus install-info may have done
[--help] [--unsafe] [--version] [--] [\fI<dirname>\fP]
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 trailing 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 \fBextremely careful\fP 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.
Output the help screen and exit successfully.
Set some additional possibly useful options.
.B "Warning: the `--unsafe' option may garble an otherwise correct file!"
Output version and exit successfully.
.I "/usr/info/dir or <dirname>/dir"
The info directory file. The lock file is named the same, with ".lock" suffix.
