install-info directions confusing
I've been trying to decipher the necessary syntax for intall-info.
`man install-info' and `info install-info' have different opinions
about how it works.
`info install-info' says point blank that:
`install-info some.info dir' will install some.info entry in dir and
even create dir if necessary.
When I run that command, I get `too many arguments'
I tried many many other combos, specifying names with the long options
I can write to the default /usr/info/dir all right but cannot find a
way to generate a dir file.
So to get to the point here, I'm trying to do this:
cd to a hand built package `tramp' and make a dir file in its texi
directory to point the reader at. I don't want to put it in the
default site wide /usr/info/dir
so in /usr/local/tramp/texi
I want to insert /usr/local/tramp/texi/tramp.info into
I don't want to create `dir' by hand. install-info is supposed to be
able to create it for me.
For a one time deal, I know how to get the job done by hand but want
to let the tools do the work.
