in                 infocmp            infotocap          installer
indent             infokey            install            instmodsh
indxbib            infomap-build      install-info       instruments
info               infomap-install    install_name_tool
sh-3.2$ infomap-build

Usage: infomap-build [-w working_dir] [-p param_file]
       [-D var_1=val_1 ... -D var_N=val_N]
       (-s single_corpus_file | -m multi_file_list)
       <model_tag>

sh-3.2$

I am not able to figure out why..

Thanks
