XEmacs / info / dir

-*- Text -*-

This is the file .../info/dir, which contains the topmost node of the Info
hierarchy.  The first time you invoke Info you start off looking at that node,
which is (dir)Top.

Rather than adding new nodes to this directory (and this file) it is a better
idea to put them in a site-local directory, and then configure info to search
in that directory as well.  That way, you won't have to re-edit this file when
a new release of the editor comes out.

For example, you could add this code to .../lisp/site-start.el, which is
loaded before ~/.emacs each time the editor starts up:

  ;; find local info nodes
  (setq Info-directory-list
        (append Info-directory-list '("/private/info/")))

Then, when you enter info, a dir file like this one will be automatically
created and saved (provided you have write access to the directory).  The
contents of that file "/private/info/dir" will be appended to the contents of
this file.

File: dir	Node: Top	This is the top of the INFO tree

  This is Info, the online documentation browsing system.
  This page (the Directory node) gives a menu of major topics.

  button1 or button2 on a highlighted word follows that cross-reference.
  button3 anywhere brings up a menu of commands.
  ? lists additional keyboard commands.
  h invokes the Info tutorial.
