less filename


This script creates the less alias which display a file one page at a time to the current window. Between each page you will be prompted to press a key. You can press 'q' to stop viewing the file.

The less alias works properly, even if you change windows while you are viewing the file (ie, it won't switch windows and follow you).

The less alias is not re-entrant. You cannot view more than one file at a time.

This script was inspired by the more script.


The less script was written for EPIC3 by hop, and was inspired by the more script by archon.
