FreeBSD offers a better solution than Linux: It uses the key on
the keyboard that is intended to do this.
Have a look at the ScrL (Scroll Lock) key. Have you ever asked
yourself what this key will do? Try it, press it! :-)
Use the up / down and page up / page down arrow keys then. To
relapse to normal operations, press ScrL again.
While in ScrL mode, you can still enter data, but it won't be
echoed to the terminal. You will see it after exiting ScrL
To indicate ScrL mode, the block cursor will disappear.
