more: Already shown to be less

You’ll probably find more in util-linux in your distro. We sort of looked at more a month ago, when we cruised past less.

The opportunity is here for some great puns, but I think most of them were invested in less, so we don’t need any more. 🙄

And by comparison, more is anything but that. Most of the features that were built into less were additions to the more corpus, meaning if anything, more is less than less.

All the same, if you need a fundamental pager, chances are your system comes with more. If you use a pager regularly, you probably won’t want more though — you’ll want less, if not most. Later for that one though. 😉
