Bug#51539: dpkg: cleanup-info manual page

Package: dpkg
Version: 1.6.1
Severity: normal


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


enJoy -*/\*- don't even try to pronounce my first name
.TH CLEANUP-INFO 8 "November 1999" "Debian Project" "dpkg utilities"
cleanup-info \- clean up the mess that bogus install-info may have done
.B cleanup-info
[--help] [--unsafe] [--version] [--] [\fI<dirname>\fP]
.B 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 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.
.I --help
Output the help screen and exit successfully.
.I --unsafe
Set some additional possibly useful options.
.B "Warning: the `--unsafe' option may garble an otherwise correct file!"
.I --version
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.
Probably many.
.BR install-info (8),
.BR info (1).
