[edit]

GNU less

https://www.gnu.org/software/less/
Display paginator.

Less is a paginator file similar to 'more' or 'pg,' but that allows backward as well as forward movement through the file. In addition, it doesn't have to read the entire input file before starting, so it starts large files faster than text editors like vi. Less uses termcap (or terminfo on some terminals) so it can run on a variety of terminals; there is even limited support for hard copy terminals.
