Not too on-topic, but FWIW `info+.el' provides command
`Info-merge-subnodes', bound to `+' in Info, which
gives you a plain-text, prettified version of the
current node and all its child nodes (or all of its
descendant nodes, au choix), creating kind of a
little book-in-a-buffer.

(Not necessarily so little.  You could merge
_everything_ in a manual into a single such book.)

You can also create virtual Info manuals, collecting
arbitrary nodes from any manuals.  Unlike what `+'
gives you, such a virtual book is in Info mode, with
all the usual Info features.

Command `Info-virtual-book' is bound to `v' in Info.
You "save" a node using `.' (`Info-save-current-node').
Using `v' creates a book from the currently "saved"
