Specifies the info node to visit initially. Possible formats for
"(filename)nodename" most general
"(filename)" equivalent to (filename)Top
"filename" equivalent to (filename).
If filename is not absolute, the info directories (from INFOPATH and -dir) will be searched. If filename cannot be found, its lower case version will be tried.
An alternative way to specify the node "(FILE)NODE" is with "-file FILE -node NODE".
If no node is given, the default node "(dir)Top" is used.

A colon separated list of file suffixes to try when searching for an
info file. If not set,
will try the suffixes "", ".info", and "-info". In addition,
will always automatically try the suffixes .Z, .z, and .gz and deal with
