INFO(1)                   User Commands                   INFO(1)

     The first non-option argument, if present, is the menu entry
     to start from; it is searched for in all `dir' files along
     INFOPATH. If it is not present, info merges all `dir' files
     and shows the result. Any remaining arguments are treated as
     the names of menu items relative to the initial node


     info show top-level dir menu

     info emacs
          start at emacs node from top-level dir

     info emacs buffers
          start at buffers node within emacs manual

     info --show-options emacs
          start at node with emacs' command line options

     info -f ./foo.info
          show file ./foo.info, not searching dir
