If you're using GNU C or C++ library functions and you have the manuals
installed then C-h S will do the trick.  I think the same is true for
Fortran and Ada too.  But, it would be very useful if more languages and
libraries were supported.  Automatic generation of info from other
documentation formats would be very useful.  It should be possible to
add code to something like pandoc to output info files.
