    `more` is somewhat of an equivalent. `less` is a GNU alternative AFAIK,
    so it will have to be installed on any commercial UNIX.

    Actually 'less' is much more than 'more',
    so you should go and install it on your computer,
    then set your PAGER enviro to it,
    eg 'export PAGER=/usr/local/bin/less' or wherever it is
