TKInfo is a very fast lightweight viewer for GNU info files, requiring
no configuration. It is particularly effective for local browsing of
large and/or interconnected sets of info files.
TkInfo can be used stand alone (via wish), or embedded within an
application to provide integrated, on-line help.
