Vinfo is a Vim plugin that allows you to read Info documentation files right inside a Vim session in a Vim-help fashioned way or from a shell just the way you normally use Info.
Vinfo can be used right inside a Vim session or from a shell using an alias.
Use inside Vim
You can use Vinfo inside Vim with:
Where doc is the Info documentation to read.
Example: Read Glibc Info documentation
Use outside Vim
When your are not inside a Vim session but in the shell prompt you can invoke Vinfo as a command by using the following shell script:
vim -c \"Vinfo $1\" -c 'only'
Save it in /usr/bin/ as a file named vinfo, give it execution permission with:
$ chmod +x /usr/bin/vinfo
Then from your shell you can read a DOC with:
$ vinfo doc
* Vinfo is Pathogen/ Vundle compatible.
* Or install it manually by copying the files to the corresponding locations.
