.\" For nroff, turn off justification.  Always turn off hyphenation; it makes
.\" way too many mistakes in technical documents.

.SH "NAME"
merge\-info, merge and unmerge GNU Info index files
.SH "SYNOPSIS"
.IX Header "SYNOPSIS"
merge-info        [\s-1OPTION\s0 ...] \s-1FILE\s0 \s-1FILE\s0
.SH "DESCRIPTION"
.IX Header "DESCRIPTION"
merge-info can merge and unmerge the \s-1GNU\s0 Info index files named
\&'dir'. These files are usally created by \fBinstall-info\fR at install time
of an application, or automatically generated by a \fBmkinfodir\fR script.
.PP
If you are installing 2 packages at two different locations, two
different 'dir' files are created. Eg.: One in
.PP
.Vb 1
\&          /stow/foo/usr/local/info/dir
.Ve
.PP
and one in
.PP
.Vb 1
\&          /stow/bar/usr/local/info/dir
.Ve
.PP
This is the common case if you are using a tool like
\&\fIxstow\fR\|(1). \fBmerge-info\fR can handle this and can merge both 'dir'
files and creates a new 'dir' file.
.SH "USAGE"
.IX Header "USAGE"
merge-info [\s-1OPTION\s0 ...] \s-1FILE\s0 \s-1FILE\s0
.PP
Merge two files:
.PP
.Vb 1
\&      merge\-info /stow/foo/info/dir /stow/bar/info/dir
.Ve
.PP
Remove the content of a 'dir' file from another 'dir' file
.PP
.Vb 1
\&       merge\-info \-u /stow/foo/info/dir /stow/bar/info/dir
.Ve
.SH "OPTIONS"
.IX Header "OPTIONS"
.IP "\fB\-dl \-debug\-level\fR \s-1INT\s0" 4
.IX Item "-dl -debug-level INT"
Set's the debug level. An unsigned integer is accepted. The
default value is 0.
.IP "\fB\-h \-help\fR" 4
.IX Item "-h -help"
Shows a help screen.
.IP "\fB\-V \-Version\fR" 4
.IX Item "-V -Version"
Displays the verion number of the XStow package. \fBmerge-info\fR is
shipped with \fBxstow\fR(1).
.IP "\fB\-u \-unmerge\fR" 4
.IX Item "-u -unmerge"
Unmerge instead of merge. Note: It is not possible splitting up one
\&'dir' file into two. But removing the content of one 'dir' file from
the other one is possible.
.IP "\fB\-o \-outfile\fR" 4
.IX Item "-o -outfile"
Write the resulting 'dir' file not to stdout. Write it to a given
file. Since \fBmerge-info\fR does not open this outfile until all the
merging or unmerging stuff is done it is allowed that the outfile is
one the source files. eg.:
.Sp
.Vb 1
\&    merge\-info \-u foo/info/dir bar/info/dir \-o foo/info/dir
.Ve
.IP "\fB\-d \-duplicate\fR" 4
.IX Item "-d -duplicate"
Remove duplicate entries. When merging 2 files an entry can appear in
more than one section. If you do not wan't this, use this option.
.SH "ENVIRONMENT VARIABLES"
.IX Header "ENVIRONMENT VARIABLES"
.IP "\fB\s-1XSTOW_DEBUG_LEVEL\s0\fR" 4
.IX Item "XSTOW_DEBUG_LEVEL"
Same as the \fB\-debug\-level\fR option.
.SH "AUTHORS"
.IX Header "AUTHORS"
merge-info was written by Martin Oberzalek <kingleo@gmx.at>.
