Info 2.0 is a complete rewrite of the original standalone Info that I
(Brian Fox) wrote in 1987, the first program I wrote for rms.  That
program was something like my second Unix program ever, and my die-hard
machine language coding habits tended to show through.  I found the
original Info hard to read and maintain, and thus decided to write this one.

The rewrite consists of about 12,000 lines of code written in about 12
days.  I believe this version of Info to be in much better shape than the
original Info.

Info 2.0 is substantially different from its original standalone
predecessor.  It appears almost identical to the GNU Emacs version, but has
the advantages of smaller size, ease of portability, and a built in library
which can be used in other programs (to get or display documentation from
Info files, for example).

A full listing of the commands available in Info can be gotten by typing
`?' while within an Info window.  This produces a node in a window which
can be viewed just like any Info node.
