I want to read Xref (Find Identifiers References) in Emacs.

When running info C-hi and then Info-menu m, I can not find any Xref topic.
I have helm enabled, so it completes topics on info.
For example, it completes EDE which appears in Maintaining Large Programs, Xref parent page.

How can I invoke Xref help on Emacs info?

It's part of the Emacs manual: do C-h i m emacs RET i xref RET and you should get there. The i xref RET part looks for xref in the index of the Emacs manual.

  • Great, thank you!
