Need help findind a way of using existing unix utilities to diplay
chunks of N lines of a text files. Here N <= the number of lines in
For instance, say that my xterm/console/"Konsole" is 80x53 lines.
My text file is around 200 lines long and I want to use more or less
or some GUI pager to display only 15 lines at one time. Tapping the
space bar would display another 15 lines and so on until EOF. Is
there a way of doing with with flags of the existing /usr/bin/less
or is there some other pager that I can build?
