;;; Commentary:

;; These are default settings for names of certain files and directories
;; that Emacs needs to refer to from time to time.

;; If these settings are not right, override them with `setq'
;; in site-init.el.  Do not change this file.

;;; Code:

(defvar Info-default-directory-list
  (let ((start (list "/usr/local/lib/info/"
		     ;; This comes second so that, if it is the same
		     ;; as configure-info-directory (which is usually true)
		     ;; and Emacs has been installed (also usually true)
		     ;; then the list will end with two copies of this;
		     ;; which means that the last dir file Info-insert-dir
		     ;; finds will be the one in this directory.
	(configdir (file-name-as-directory configure-info-directory)))
    (setq start (nconc start (list configdir)))
  "Default list of directories to search for Info documentation files.
They are searched in the order they are given in the list.
Therefore, the directory of Info files that come with Emacs
normally should come last (so that local files override standard ones).

Once Info is started, the list of directories to search
comes from the variable `Info-directory-list'.
This variable `Info-default-directory-list' is used as the default
for initializing `Info-directory-list' when Info is started.")
