Documentation: clarify meaning of --html-path, --man-path, and --info-path
These options tell UI programs where git put its documentation, so "Help" actions can show the documentation for *this* version of git without regard to how MANPATH and INFOPATH are set up. Details: . Each variable tells where documentation is expected to be. They do not indicate whether documentation was actually installed. . The output of "git --html-path" is an absolute path and can be used in "file://$(git --html-path)/git-add.html" to name the HTML file documenting a particular command. . --man-path names a manual page hierarchy (e.g., /home/user/share/man). Its output can be passed to "man -M" or put at the beginning of $MANPATH. . --info-path names a directory with info files (e.g., /home/user/share/info). Its output is suitable as an argument to "info -d" or for inclusion in $INFOPATH. Helped-by: Junio C Hamano <> Signed-off-by: Jonathan Nieder <> Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <>
