Yes, "ls | less" is the way to do it.  You can add a shell alias to
make it easier to type:

  alias pls="ls -l | less"

That's for bourne-style shells (sh,bash,zsh).  for csh, you would use

  alias pls "ls | less"

Another way to do it would be to write a script named pls and put it in
your path:

  #! /bin/sh
  ls "$@" | less
