After using "git diff", I believe that Git (126.96.36.199) uses "less" by default if there is no explicit pager specification (via $PAGER or Git's core.pager).
1) Am I correct? 2) I dislike defaulting to using a pager (partly because I dislike "less" in particular). 3) In any case, using a pager by default doesn't seem to be documented, either on the main "git" manual page or in "git-config".
