The info utility reads documentation in Info format. The first nonoption argument, if present, is the menu entry to start from; it's searched for in all dir files along INFOPATH. If it is not present, info merges all dir files and shows the result. Any remaining arguments are treated as the names of menu items relative to the initial node visited.
