HELP-MODE is a mode's symbol.
REGEXP is a regular expression matching those help items whose
 documentation can be looked up via DOC-SPEC.
IGNORE-CASE is non-nil if help items are case insensitive.
DOC-SPEC is a list of documentation specifications of the form


INFO-NODE is the name (including file name part) of an Info index.
TRANS-FUNC is a function translating index entries into help items;
 nil means add only those index entries matching REGEXP, a string
 means prepend string to the first word of all index entries.
PREFIX and SUFFIX are parts of a regular expression.  If one of
 them is non-nil then search the help item's Info node for the
 first occurrence of the regular expression `PREFIX ITEM SUFFIX'.
 ITEM will be highlighted with `info-lookup-highlight-face' if this
 variable is not nil.
PARSE-RULE is either the symbol name of a function or a regular
 expression for guessing the default help item at point.  Fuzzy
 regular expressions like \"[_a-zA-Z0-9]+\" do a better job if
 there are no clear delimiters; do not try to write too complex
 expressions.  PARSE-RULE defaults to REGEXP.
OTHER-MODES is a list of cross references to other help modes.")
