Re: Texinfo vs. Debian install-info, new upstream texinfo
Thanks for writing, Norbert. I was just about to do the same.
- Concerning the update-info-dir script I am a but lost, do we have
a script for this already?
There are two different scripts in the Texinfo distribution to do this
job: gen-dir-node and fix-info-dir (in the util subdirectory). I don't
know which is better or what the differences are.
It seems desirable to me to have the logic for rebuilding the dir file
be in a separate script, not embedded in install-info. Not something to
program in C, seems to me.
- Add support for multiple dir files in the info viewer.
Both Emacs Info and standalone info already merge every dir file they
find, as far as I know. Are you talking about something else?
I plan to make a pretest for the next "real" release of texinfo soon.
It would be great to finally make progress on the install-info issue.
