info-mode

Put this buffer in Info mode.

This command sets up keys for browsing an Info file. Normally you would run the info command, not this one.

These are the commands in Info mode:

H
shows detailed documentation on using Info mode.

?
displays this list of available Info commands.

<Space>
pages through the entire Info file one screenful at a time, scrolling either or moving to a different node as appropriate.

<Backspace>
pages backwards through the Info file.

<Tab>
moves to the next reference or menu item in this node.

<Backtab>
moves to the previous reference or menu item in this node.

<Enter>
follows the current reference or menu item to another node. You can also double-click one of these with the mouse to follow it.

B
moves to the beginning of the current node.

L
goes to the most recently visited node before this one in the history list.

N
goes to the next node after this one, as designated in the heading at the top of this node.

P
goes to the previous node before this one, as designated in the heading at the top of this node.

U
goes up to the parent of this node, as designated in the heading at the top of this node.

M
prompts for the name of an entry in this node's menu, then goes to it.

1, 2, 3, ... 0
goes to the first, second, third, ... entry in this node's menu. 0 goes to the last entry in this node's menu.

F
prompts for the name of a cross-reference in this node, then goes to it.

T
goes to the top node in the current Info file, which is always named Top.

D
goes to the directory node, a node that refers to all known Info files. From here you can navigate to any other Info file.

G
prompts for the name of a node, then goes to it.

]
goes to the next node in the sequence of Info nodes formed by walking the leaves of the hierarchy within the current Info file, much like <Space> but without paging.

[
goes to the previous node in the sequence of Info nodes formed by walking the leaves of the hierarchy within the current Info file, much like <Backspace> but without paging.

>
goes to the last node in the file, viewed as a hierarchy (the node a repeated ] would eventually reach).

S
prompts for a search string, then searches for the next match, switching nodes if necessary. Keys like Ctrl-T to toggle regular expression mode work as usual. Use Ctrl-S or Ctrl-R instead of S to search only within the current node.

I
prompts for text, then looks it up in this Info file's indexes, and goes to the first node with an index entry containing that text. Press <Enter> without typing any text to just go to the first index.

,
goes to the next entry in the set of index entries set by the last I command.

Q
quits Info mode by switching this window to the buffer it displayed before you entered Info mode.
