This comment must be about reading info inside emacs ... right?

I think it needs to be said somewhere in this discussion that a regex
search needs to be added to the standalone info reader.  A regex
search is much more usefull in my opinion, than a string match search.

Of course the index search is the first line of attack but after that
I rely on emacs  info reader's `s' (regex) search.

I wondered why this is not part of standalone info reader.  Is it
difficult to add?  If its possible, can it also be added to the new
formats now under discussion?
