**It is available in a "single-file archive" of many sorts: 

"This manual is available in the following formats: 

   formatted in HTML (640K characters) entirely on one web page. 

   formatted in HTML with one web page per chapter. 

   formatted in HTML with one web page per node. 

   formatted as an Info document (174K characters gzipped tar file). 

   formatted as ASCII text (545K characters). 

   formatted as a TeX dvi file (254K characters gzipped). 

   formatted as a PostScript file (333K characters gzipped). 

   the original Texinfo source (173K characters gzipped tar file) 

*Again, I highly recommend it for one and all; I read and savored every page.

Enjoy!
