It's readily tunable, by setenv'ing LESS variable to contain some of:
-e or --quit-at-eof
Causes less to automatically exit the second time it reaches end-of-file. By default,
the only way to exit less is via the "q" command.
-E or --QUIT-AT-EOF
Causes less to automatically exit the first time it reaches end-of-file.
-K or --quit-on-intr
Causes less to exit immediately when an interrupt character (usually ^C) is typed.
Normally, an interrupt character causes less to stop whatever it is doing and return to
its command prompt. Note that use of this option makes it impossible to return to the
command prompt from the "F" command.
While we return folks to the regularly scheduled debate on fancier .cshrc setup, I think I'd be happier with some of these changes showing up as examples, and having people try them out and look for any unexpected side effects before adopting them wholesale into the default system-wide dot.cshrc template...
