There are two primary Info readers:
info, a stand-alone program
designed just to read Info files (see What is Info?)
info package in GNU Emacs, a general-purpose editor.
The stand-alone Info reader (greater or equal to version 6.0) may be configured to hide some information (related to note and menu items).
For more information, look at the GNU Info manual, more precisely, look at chapter "Manipulating Variables" (
hide-note-references) and look at chapter "Custom Key Bindings", section "infokey format" (last paragraphs).
prompt% info info hide-note-references
prompt% nano ~/.infokey
prompt% cat ~/.infokey
GNU Emacs (Info mode) may also be configured to hide some informations (related to note and menu items), setting the variable
Info-hide-note-references¹, in an Emacs initialization file (see GNU Emacs, chapter "Customization").
¹ Feature available in Texinfo, since version 4.8 (2005).
