Hi,

I am not sure if this is the right place to ask this.

I am trying to use the “bundle of emacs info file” from http://caml.inria.fr/pub/docs/manual-ocaml/
to use it with my emacs.

install-info --info-file=./ocaml-4.04-refman.info.tar.gz --info-dir=/usr/local/share/info/

But I get the following warning (error? )

install-info: warning: no info dir entry in./ocaml-4.04-refman.info.tar.gz

As jlam suggested, looks like you trying to import a tar-ball instead of an actual file.

It worked. Thanks so much!

I was confused as there were more tar files in the top-level tar file.

In addition to using the info-install command, I also had to copy all the content in my emacs’ /usr/local/share/info.
