A patch is below to give a better description for less.
(By the way, some English dictionaries don't have a "s" on backwards;
I don't care if s/backwards/backward/ .)

- Less is a program similar to more (1), but which allows
- backward movement in the file as well as forward movement.
- Also, less does not have to read the entire input file
- before starting, so with large input files it starts up
- faster than text editors like vi (1).
+Less is a pager program more advanced than more(1). Its features
+include backwards movement, searching and highlighting, multiple files,
+bold and underlining, key bindings (using lesskey(1)), customized tab
+stops, filters for different file types, custom character sets, line
+numbering, custom prompts, and more.
+Also, less does not have to read the entire input file before
+starting, so with large input files it starts up faster than text
+editors like vi(1).
+This package also includes the lessecho command which can expand
+metacharacters, such as * and ?, in filenames.
+This version of less was written by and is maintained by Mark Nudelman.
