After opening "man ls", trying to search for "--all" leads to
"Pattern not found (press RETURN)".
Inquiring on comp.unix.shell, I was told that for this kind of search to
work properly in linux , one must set PAGER=less. However, that does not
seem to work in Cygwin, at least using the old default terminal. Is
there a workaround?
