It's a new function in PIP in M+ 4.6 and M 4.8.
/PA pauses after each page.
However, it's slightly annoying that it prints 24 lines, if you have the
terminal set to 24 lines. Since the prompt takes another line, it means
that you miss seeing one line for each page.
VTL is generally a much better option. However, VTL have the unfortunate
property of being a very efficient tool to detect buggy
SET /HOLD in RSX will also work, but it requires that you have a VT52,
since the hold-screen mode don't exist in newer terminals.
