	      add DIR to INFOPATH.

	      specify nodes in first visited Info file.

Notes
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 visited.

Examples

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