I want my bikeshed to be purple with yellow stars.
I want my PAGER to be Jim Davis's most(1). Does a LOT more than more or
less. (Does have the annoying te/ti thing, though.) Displays binary.
Auto-decompresses compressed files. Allows moving my line or percentage.
Whole raft of neat stuff. Usually the second port (after portmaster) I
install on a system since my finger type "most" even when I want them to
type "more" because the system does not have most installed.
I don't expect anyone else to agree and don't expect it to ever be in the
base, let alone the default. Still, it's a much better pager then less,
whether it's called more or not. Started using it at least 25 years ago on
