Change the man page pager in 10.3
Authored by: TheGS on Sep 15, '04 01:02:56PM

This is slightly off-topic, but the basic keyboard shortcuts for less aren't difficult to remember. Another poster reminded that in Panther, more is symlinked to less, so they can apply even if you changed the $PAGER to point to more.

Aside from the obvious space bar to scroll the man page down by one screen, less also supports the up and down arrow keys and 'j' and 'k' keys familiar from vi (among others) — you don't have to take you fingers off the home row!
