info2man - generate man pages from info documents
info2man converts a GNU info file to a man page. It first generates a
POD (Plain Old Documentation) file using info2pod(1), then converts
this to a man page using pod2man(1).
info-file should be the full path to the info file (probably in
/usr/share/info or similar).
The style of info documentation and man pages differs considerably.
Info documentation is generally written as a book, making full use of
chapters, hyperlinks, footnotes, and the like. By contrast, man pages
are often intended as something closer to a reference card.
That said, many people prefer the interface used to view man pages (a
normal pager) to the available info browsers. This program will
convert the form, but not the content; don’t expect it to possess the
artificial intelligence necessary to turn a lengthy interconnected info
file into a man page that is a model of conciseness!
