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'. ;-)
about less :
"less is more, but more more than more is, so more is less less, so use
more less if you want less more."
about most :
"If less is more than more, most is more than less."
unfortunatelly, most doesn't exist yet under cygwin :-(
