pager program similar to more
This package provides "less", a file pager (that is, a memory-efficient utility for displaying text one screenful at a time). Unlike the basic pager "more", it is capable of both backward and forward navigation through a file. As part of the GNU project, it is widely regarded as the standard pager on UNIX-derived systems.
Also provided are "lessecho", a simple utility for ensuring arguments with spaces are correctly quoted; "lesskey", a tool for modifying the standard (vi-like) keybindings; and "lesspipe", a filter for specific types of input, such as .doc or .txt.gz files.
