OPTIONS

--debug report what is being done.
--delete
  delete existing entries for INFO-FILE from DIR-FILE; don’t insert any new entries.
--description=TEXT
  the description of the entry is TEXT; used with the --name option to become synonymous with the --entry option.
--dir-file=NAME
  specify file name of Info directory file; equivalent to using the DIR-FILE argument.
--dry-run same as --test.
--entry=TEXT
  insert TEXT as an Info directory entry. TEXT is written as an Info menu item line followed
by zero or more extra lines starting with whitespace.
If you specify more than one entry, all are added. If you don’t specify any entries, they are determined
from information in the Info file itself.
When removing, TEXT specifies the entry to remove. TEXT is only removed as a last resort, if the entry as determined from the Info file is not present, and the basename of the Info file isn’t found either.
