Sure. Thanks for asking, it _is_ in /usr/share/info ; it was _not_, as an

Would doing what you have shown me inserted the appropriate text in 'dir'?

coreutils. Yes, this was a temptation, however, I wasn't sure if it was a
safe operation considering it was 'just' a documentation issue.

Thank you, Ziyad.
