I'd like to see the info page for the word where the point is.
When I type ``C-h C-i" it says there is no info node for that word.
But in bash there is.
I was told to add the path to Info-default-directory-list, but I don't know where it is.

``C-h i" works fine.

What I need is very simple, open the info page for the word where the point is.
