The viewer for the most detailed documentation of the GNU tools, info, is not very comfortable for someone not used to emacs.
There seem to be various other viewers available, some specialized info viewers, some more generic hypertext viewers/browsers that also support GNU TexInfo, the info format.
Both GUI and terminal programs are of interest.

GNU TexInfo is a hypertext format, like HTML; but viewers that linearize the page could be also interesting.

This is not a perfect solution, but you can use evil-mode on Emacs to get vim keybindings and run Info using M-x info.

  • However, I found that it's easier to simply learn the info keybindings by going through the info manual. (Press h in info.) Jul 25, 2021 at 17:16
