Bug ID: 38520
           Summary: no pager for help.
           Product: lldb
           Version: unspecified
          Hardware: PC
                OS: All
            Status: NEW
          Severity: enhancement
          Priority: P
         Component: All Bugs

If I invoke the lldb help on a given topic, most of it flies off the screen.

(lldb) help expression

It would make sense for the lldb help to be paged like gdb (and probably to use
that pager for other long text too).

I understand that there are various workarounds, like using a terminal window
with a scrollbar (provided you don't use a multiplexer like screen, which
messes that up).  The best work around for help appears to be something like
the following from another window:

lldb -b -O 'help expression' | less

which is still somewhat clumsy, especially compared to the ease of use of gdb
