    The following form allows you to view linux man pages.

    Command:

    more

    
    
    
    

    DESCRIPTION

         More is a filter for paging through text one screenful at a time.  This
         version is especially primitive.  Users should realize that less(1) pro-
         vides more(1) emulation and extensive enhancements.
    
    
    

    OPTIONS

         Command line options are described below.  Options are also taken from
         the environment variable MORE (make sure to precede them with a dash
         (''-'')) but command line options will override them.
    
         -num  This option specifies an integer which is the screen size (in
               lines).
    
         -d    more will prompt the user with the message "[Press space to con-
               tinue, 'q' to quit.]" and will display "[Press 'h' for instruc-
               tions.]" instead of ringing the bell when an illegal key is
               pressed.
    
         -l    more usually treats ^L (form feed) as a special character, and will
               pause after any line that contains a form feed.  The -l option will
               prevent this behavior.
    
         -f    Causes more to count logical, rather than screen lines (i.e., long
               lines are not folded).
    
         -p    Do not scroll.  Instead, clear the whole screen and then display
               the text.
    
         -c    Do not scroll.  Instead, paint each screen from the top, clearing
               the remainder of each line as it is displayed.
    
         -s    Squeeze multiple blank lines into one.
    
         -u    Suppress underlining.
    
         +/    The +/ option specifies a string that will be searched for before
               each file is displayed.
    
         +num  Start at line number num.
    
    
    

    COMMANDS

         Interactive commands for more are based on vi(1).  Some commands may be
         preceded by a decimal number, called k in the descriptions below.  In the
         following descriptions, ^X means control-X.
    
         h or ?      Help: display a summary of these commands.  If you forget all
                     the other commands, remember this one.
    
         SPACE       Display next k lines of text.  Defaults to current screen
                     size.
    
         f           Skip forward k screenfuls of text.  Defaults to 1.
    
         b or ^B     Skip backwards k screenfuls of text.  Defaults to 1.  Only
                     works with files, not pipes.
    
         '           Go to place where previous search started.
    
         =           Display current line number.
    
         /pattern    Search for kth occurrence of regular expression.  Defaults to
                     1.
    
         n           Search for kth occurrence of last r.e.  Defaults to 1.
    
         !<cmd> or :!<cmd>
                     Execute <cmd> in a subshell
    
         v           Start up an editor at current line.  The editor is taken from
                     the environment variable VISUAL if defined, or EDITOR if
                     VISUAL is not defined, or defaults to "vi" if neither VISUAL
                     nor EDITOR is defined.
    
         ^L          Redraw screen
    
         :n          Go to kth next file.  Defaults to 1.
    
         :p          Go to kth previous file.  Defaults to 1.
    
         :f          Display current file name and line number
    
         .           Repeat previous command
    
    
    

    ENVIRONMENT

         More utilizes the following environment variables, if they exist:
    
         MORE        This variable may be set with favored options to more.
    
         SHELL       Current shell in use (normally set by the shell at login
                     time).
    
         TERM        Specifies terminal type, used by more to get the terminal
                     characteristics necessary to manipulate the screen.
