man more less

this falls into the category: things I've learned today.

Yes, the headline might be looking pretty funny. Let's presume you are reading man pages and notice "--MORE--" at the bottom of your screen. Ouch.. no paging or searching in the manpage. No problem, let's google then for "man more less" ... or maybe not - this won't give you any useful help on replacing the more manpage pager with less. 

To sum it up: set your PAGER environment variable to "less" - there goes another annoyance you won't have to worry about ever again.
