It seems that pretty much all unixes alias "more" to "less" these days.
It would be very nice if that was the default behaviour of cygwin.
Would save me from constantly wondering why nothing is happening when I
type "more ...." on a newly installed box :-)
more.exe is supplied by the util-linux package.
And as is true of the traditional 'more', it can do less than 'less'. ;-)
