I realize modern pagers like 'less' can automatically exit if the output is less than a screen. But are we sure it's true for all pagers? It would be annoying to have a pager waiting for me to exit when I only want to check one config item out (which prints one line). Trading one-time convenience at reading the manual with constantly pressing 'q' does not seem justified. -- Duy
