NAME

more - file perusal filter for crt viewing  

SYNOPSIS

more [options] file...  

DESCRIPTION

more is a filter for paging through text one screenful at a time. This version is especially primitive. Users should realize that less(1) provides more(1) emulation plus extensive enhancements.  

OPTIONS

Options are also taken from the environment variable MORE (make sure to precede them with a dash (-)) but command-line options will override those.
-d
Prompt with "[Press space to continue, 'q' to quit.]", and display "[Press 'h' for instructions.]" instead of ringing the bell when an illegal key is pressed.
-l
Do not pause after any line containing a ^L (form feed).
-f
Count logical lines, rather than screen lines (i.e., long lines are not folded).
-p
Do not scroll. Instead, clear the whole screen and then display the text. Notice that this option is switched on automatically if the executable is named page.
-c
Do not scroll. Instead, paint each screen from the top, clearing the remainder of each line as it is displayed.
-s
Squeeze multiple blank lines into one.
-u
Suppress underlining.
-number
The screen size to use, in number of lines.
+number
Start displaying each file at line number.
+/string
The string to be searched in each file before starting to display it.
 

COMMANDS

Interactive commands for more are based on vi(1). Some commands may be preceded by a decimal number, called k in the descriptions below. In the following descriptions, ^X means control-X.
