Re: Not binary
They use \037 as a delimiter. Last I looked that wasn't a text character.

Not binary
Info pages are not binary. They're far more readable than man pages if you're stuck without a viewer.

Re: Excellent idea

Too bad most, if not all GNU
applications now only include info files
or outdated man pages.


Yeah. I actually wrote these tools to use in my own "man"
command so that I can say "man info-topic" much like any
other man entry.

BTW, GNU Binutils
now uses a script called texi2pod.pl and
pod2man.

Yep - my man command uses pod2man | nroff to produce
the stuff to page after conversion with info2pod.
