      I looked through.

        i wonder if this is a case of a bad help file :) (there is a
        discussion on vim@... about that, hence the smiley)

        anyway, it sort of is noted:

        Marks are stored for each file separately. When a file
        is read and 'viminfo' is non-empty, the marks for that
        file are read from the viminfo file. NOTE:

        i do see how one could miss it, since after doing :help
        viminfo, you're taken to a screen, which goes on about what
        the heck viminfo is, and not the option settings screen. you
        first have to scroll some, and then jump to 'viminfo' tag.

        alternatively, you could do :help 'viminfo' (with tick
        marks)

        in any case, the point of this email is that there are many
        things that look very similar in the helpfiles, and to go
        through them, a neat trick i learned form someone on the
        list not that long ago, is to hit tab several times after
        you type the beginning of a word. that way if you did :help
        viminfo<TAB> it'd suggest 'viminfo', +viminfo, viminfo-file,
        etc.
        alternatively, you could do :help viminfo, then hist ctrl+d
        which would then show all the matches at the same time. take
        a look at :help cmdline-completion

        vim has plenty of documentation, but you dont always know
        what to look, so the above trick helps alot

        hth,
