At last info documentation finally makes sense :)
Problem with bold text on man pages
This looks like a great utility; It's a definite
alternative to GNU info, but I'm having
trouble with the man functionality:
boldface text looks like this:
It's like it's not interpreting the ANSI escape
codes; I'm using the framebuffer console; not sure
if that matters. Also, the color looks fine on
hyperlinks and info pages.
It is also excellent to view manpages.
In GoboLinux, we added a wrapper function so that man
redirects to 'pinfo -m'. Yes, it's *that* good.
Pinfo was one of the main inspirations for me to write
which attempts to be for top what pinfo is to info (an
improved, more interactive, replacement).
thank you thank you thank you
BTW, thank you. emacs/info blows. I couldn't agree more with all the previous coments. This is the first comment I've ever made on freshmeat. That's how happy this utility made me.

Ok I figured it out. Turns out you have to press Shift-key while selecting with mouse
Very, very nice program. I definitely recomend it to everybody. The only feature I cannot seem to get is copy/paste in X11
(substitute whatever syntax is appropriate for your shell of course :)
Just what I needed
- I can't get my head around the GNU info UI (it's very Emacs-like; I never got my head around Emacs)
- I wasn't getting best use out of many GNU programs (gcc, wget are two good examples) because the meat of the documentation was in the info file and not in the manpage
- I didn't want a GUI info file reader like tkinfo
pinfo does exactly what I wanted -- it looks just like info, but the UI is much, much more intuitive. If you can use Lynx, you can use this. You can remap the keys, but I've not found any reason to do so.
