How to use Info

   You are talking to the program Info, for reading documentation.

   Right now you are looking at one "Node" of Information.  A node
contains text describing a specific topic at a specific level of
detail.  This node's topic is "how to use Info".

   The top line of a node is its "header".  This node's header (look at
it now) says that it is the node named `Help' in the file `info'.  It
says that the `Next' node after this one is the node called `Help-P'.
An advanced Info command lets you go to any node whose name you know.

   Besides a `Next', a node can have a `Previous' or an `Up'.  This
node has a `Previous' but no `Up', as you can see.

   Now it is time to move on to the `Next' node, named `Help-P'.

>> Type `n' to move there.  Type just one character;
   do not type the quotes and do not type a RET afterward.

   `>>' in the margin means it is really time to try a command.
