A pager (file viewer).


A replacement for more.

It's ok, but not great.

Using less as the default pager

export PAGER='less -F -f -R'

Less is also incompetent by default in PCLinuxOS as of 2009-03-25. man[doesn't exist] pages are all ugly. I add this to my .bashrc[doesn't exist] to fix it:

alias less="/usr/bin/less -F -f -R $@"
