Here are some common Info commands. Use
‘C-h m’ in an Info buffer to learn more. You can also read the Info manual about Info (!). It includes a tutorial about Info.
‘i’– Search through the manual’s indexes for a regexp
‘C-M-s’in Emacs 22) – Search for a string or regexp
‘g’– Go to a node by name
‘m’– Choose a menu item
Suppose you want to read an Info manual that is not in your InfoPath – file
miscpackage.info in the current directory, for instance. Here are several ways to do that – the first is generally the easiest:
‘C-u C-h i’
C-x C-f miscpackage.info M-x Info-on-current-buffer’
C-x C-f miscpackage.info M-: (Info-mode)’
‘dired-x’does this automatically.
(define-key dired-mode-map "I" (lambda () (interactive) (info (dired-get-filename))))
‘Info-merge-subnodes’, which can put all nodes related to something into a single page. This is my fondest wish for info: to have everything on one page so that I can just navigate normally without the hierarchy. (Strange, isn’t it?) – [[Gambarimasu?]]
‘i’) – browse among the hits. Create virtual manuals as arbitrary node sets. Use Icicles search with Info.
Anything is a candidate selection framework.
Start with M-x anything-info-at-point, narrow the list by typing some patterns(multiple patterns are space-delimited string), select with up/down/pgup/pgdown/C-p/C-n/C-v/M-v, choose with enter, With C-z description of selected symbol are displayed without quitting anything session.
