This command is similar to the above, but is much simpler to remember. Sure, it's isn't as precise as the parent command, but most people aren't going to remember those --flags anyways unless you stick it into your .bashrc on every single system that you manage.
This makes GNU info output menu items recursively and pipe its contents to less, allowing one to use GNU info in a manner similar to 'man'.

Some commands have more information on 'info' than in the man pages
I like man pages, and I like using `less(1)` as my pager. However, most GNU software keeps the manual in the 'GNU Texinfo' format, and I'm not a fan of the info(1) interface. Just give me less.
This command will print out the info(1) pages, using the familiar interface of less!
I use this alias in my bashrc. The --vi-keys option makes info use vi-like and less-like key bindings.
Info has some of the worst keybindings I've ever seen. Being a vim user, I attribute that to emacs influence. Use the --vi-keys option to use some of the vi keybindings, although this won't change all the keybindings. Use the "infokey" program to have more control over info keybindings.
Nice interface for an info page.
