Hmmm, I've been meaning to ask that. Netbsd's "more" command felt alot like
an old(or hacked) version of less. Here's a quick side question:
When I was building up my Netbsd system, I went off to several archive
sites to get my favorite utilities, tcsh, elm, less, smail, etc, but less-177
seemed to be missing from the gnu tree on every site I checked.
Does anybody know what has happened to less? Has it been renamed/moved?
