    short of / short for

    Hi there!

    I know that 'info' is the shortened version of 'information'. I'm not sure about which preposition is commonly used, though. Maybe both?


    info, short of information
    info, short for information


    Cheers,
    Tito

    Short of is also used, but it means you don't have enough or something or are running low in supplies.
