Please try this:

1. at the prompt type "man man" to get the man manual page.
2. press CTRL-G to to to the bottom of the document
3. press k to scroll up one line

You'll notice you cannot perform step 3 because man "quits back to the prompt after CTRL-G".

Question: How can I make man not "quit back to the prompt after CTRL-G"?

Thank you,
