axinfo - an X info reader


axinfo [ -toolkitoption ...] [ -tree ] [ -node node ] [ -rows rows ] [ file ]


axinfo is an X Window System reader for info files (generated from GNU Texinfo source
files) built using the Athena Widget Set toolkit. It was specifically written for use with
aXe and is not yet fully capable of being used to browse info file directories. It can
however be used to read a single info file at a time by setting the infoPath resource to
the location of the info file and specifying its name as an argument. The name must be
given in full, i.e. including the .info suffix, e.g. axinfo -xrm
'*infoPath:/usr/local/texinfo3.1' texi.info

axinfo has two windows: a text window, which is displayed by default, and an optional tree
window which shows the node hierarchy as a tree. Navigation of the information in the
info file being read is performed either by clicking on hypertext, i.e. sensitive, text in
the text window, or by clicking on node buttons in the tree window. The latter may provide
more direct access to a particular node than the former.

When the command line option -tree is used axinfo starts up displaying its tree window
only. Specifying the option is equivalent to setting the .tree resource

The command line option -node can be used to initially display some node other than `Top'.
It corresponds to the .node resource.

The option -rows specifies how many rows of text are to be displayed in the text window.
It corresponds to the *hyperwin.rows resource.


axinfo is built around Baudouin Raoult's HyperWidget widget.
