less it’s a fundamental command if you work on the Linux terminal.
Doing a “
man less” you can see:
NAME less - opposite of more
I love Gnu/Linux man pages, in this case it refer to
more another command that do similar things (but less).
The Linux command
less is similar to
cat, but with
less you can scroll the file instead of showing the file at once. With
less command you can scroll up in the file as well as down, where with the Linux command
more you can only scroll down the file.
