PROGRAM:

NAME


info2man - generate man pages from info documents

SYNOPSIS


info2man info-file

DESCRIPTION


info2man converts a GNU info file to a man page. It first generates a POD (Plain Old
Documentation) file using info2pod(1), then converts this to a man page using pod2man(1).

info-file should be the full path to the info file (probably in /usr/share/info or
similar).

OPTIONS


None.

NOTES


The style of info documentation and man pages differs considerably. Info documentation is
generally written as a book, making full use of chapters, hyperlinks, footnotes, and the
like. By contrast, man pages are often intended as something closer to a reference card.

That said, many people prefer the interface used to view man pages (a normal pager) to the
available info browsers. This program will convert the form, but not the content; don't
expect it to possess the artificial intelligence necessary to turn a lengthy
interconnected info file into a man page that is a model of conciseness!
