Response to: most under-used app? 'info'

The reason info is so underused is because it's got such a horrid user interface. It badly needs a plain-text dumb-tty mode like VMS Help, and a batch mode like UNIX man. The former would make it a lot more usable over low grade lines and on graphic consoles in single-use mode which are often *not* well designed for screenmode work. The latter would help those of us who want a reference instead of a tutorial.
