-<h1 class="SECT1"><a id="FILE-COMMANDS-PAGERS" name="FILE-COMMANDS-PAGERS">10.2 Pagers:
-<tt class="COMMAND">more</tt>, <tt class="COMMAND">less</tt>, and <tt
-class="COMMAND">most</tt></a></h1>
-
-<div class="SECT2">
-<h2 class="SECT2"><a id="AEN3491" name="AEN3491">10.2.1 <tt
-class="COMMAND">more</tt></a></h2>
-
-<p><tt class="COMMAND">more</tt>(1) is what we call a pager utility. Oftentimes the
-output of a particular command is too big to fit on one screen. The individual commands
-do not know how to fit their output to separate screens. They leave this job to the pager
-utility.</p>
-
-<p>The <tt class="COMMAND">more</tt> command breaks the output into individual screens
-and waits for you to press the space bar before continuing on to the next screen.
-Pressing the enter key will advance the output one line. Here is a good example:</p>
-
-<table border="0" bgcolor="#E0E0E0" width="100%">
-<tr>
-<td>
-<pre class="SCREEN">
-<samp class="PROMPT">%</samp> <kbd class="USERINPUT">cd /usr/bin</kbd>
-<samp class="PROMPT">%</samp> <kbd class="USERINPUT">ls -l</kbd>
-</pre>
-</td>
-</tr>
-</table>
-
-<p>That should scroll for a while. To break up the output screen by screen, just pipe it
-through more:</p>
-
-<table border="0" bgcolor="#E0E0E0" width="100%">
-<tr>
-<td>
-<pre class="SCREEN">
-<samp class="PROMPT">%</samp> <kbd class="USERINPUT">ls -l | more</kbd>
-</pre>
-</td>
-</tr>
-</table>
-
-<p>That is the pipe character (shift backslash). The pipe is short for saying take the
-output of <tt class="COMMAND">ls</tt> and feed it into <tt class="COMMAND">more</tt>. You
-can pipe just about anything through the <tt class="COMMAND">more</tt> command, not just
-<tt class="COMMAND">ls</tt>. Piping is also covered in <a
-href="shell-command-line.html#SHELL-COMMAND-LINE-PIPING">Section 8.2.3</a>.</p>

-
-<div class="SECT2">
-<h2 class="SECT2"><a id="AEN3518" name="AEN3518">10.2.2 <tt
-class="COMMAND">less</tt></a></h2>
-
-<p>The <tt class="COMMAND">more</tt> command is quite handy, but often you will find that
-you have advanced past the screen you wanted. more does not provide a way to go back. The
-<tt class="COMMAND">less</tt>(1) command provides this functionality. It is used in the
-same way as the <tt class="COMMAND">more</tt> command, so the previous examples apply
-here too. So, <tt class="COMMAND">less</tt> is more than <tt class="COMMAND">more</tt>.
-Joost Kremers puts it this way:</p>
-
-<a id="AEN3530" name="AEN3530"></a>
-<blockquote class="BLOCKQUOTE">
-<p><tt class="COMMAND">less</tt> is more, but more <tt class="COMMAND">more</tt> than <tt
-class="COMMAND">more</tt> is, so <tt class="COMMAND">more</tt> is less <tt
-class="COMMAND">less</tt>, so use more <tt class="COMMAND">less</tt> if you want less <tt
-class="COMMAND">more</tt>.</p>
-</blockquote>

-
-<div class="SECT2">
-<h2 class="SECT2"><a id="AEN3539" name="AEN3539">10.2.3 <tt
-class="COMMAND">most</tt></a></h2>
-
-<p>Where <tt class="COMMAND">more</tt> and <tt class="COMMAND">less</tt> leave off, <tt
-class="COMMAND">most</tt>(1) picks back up. If <tt class="COMMAND">less</tt> is more than
-<tt class="COMMAND">more</tt>, <tt class="COMMAND">most</tt> is more than <tt
-class="COMMAND">less</tt>. Whereas the other pagers can only display one file at a time,
-<tt class="COMMAND">most</tt> is capable of viewing any number of files, as long as each
-file's window is at least 2 lines long. <tt class="COMMAND">most</tt> has a lot of
-options, check the man page for full details.</p>
