A replacement 'page' command UNIX
[Editor: Submitted by Mike Stolove on July 4th]

I find the default pager (more) for the 'man' info pages to be buggy. Pressing F forwards 3 pages instead of one, it always exits at the last page, and the formatting can be improved. I prefer the program less. To change it, add this line to your ~/.login file:
setenv PAGER /usr/bin/less
This should help because, as we all know, man is dogs best friend.
