Up: Help-M

1.6.1 The u command

Congratulations! This is the node ‘Help-FOO’. It has an ‘Up’ pointer ‘Help-M’, the node you just came from via the m command. This is the usual convention—the nodes you reach from a menu have ‘Up’ nodes that lead back to the menu. Menus move Down in the tree, and ‘Up’ moves Up. ‘Previous’, on the other hand, is usually used to “stay on the same level but go backwards”.

You can go back to the node ‘Help-M’ by typing the command u for “Up”. This puts you at the menu subtopic line pointing to the subnode that the u command brought you from. (Some Info readers may put you at the front of the node instead—to get back to where you were reading, you have to type some <SPC>s.)

Another way to go Up is to click Mouse-2 on the ‘Up’ pointer shown in the header line (provided that you have a mouse).

>> Now type u to move back up to ‘Help-M’.
