display i more lines, (or another screenful if no argument is given)
display 11 more lines (a scroll). If i is given, then the scroll size is set to i.
same as ^D (control-D)
same as typing a space except that i, if present, becomes the new window size. Note that the window size reverts back to the default at the end of the current file.
skip i lines and print a screenful of lines
skip i screenfuls and print a screenful of lines
"q or Q"
quit reading the current file; go on to the next (if any)
"e or q"
When the prompt --More--(Next file: file) is printed, this command causes zmore to exit.
When the prompt --More--(Next file: file) is printed, this command causes zmore to skip the next file and continue.
Display the current line number.
search for the i-th occurrence of the regular expression expr. If the pattern is not found, zmore goes on to the next file (if any). Otherwise, a screenful is displayed, starting two lines before the place where the expression was found. The users erase and kill characters may be used to edit the regular expression. Erasing back past the first column cancels the search command.
search for the i-th occurrence of the last regular expression entered.
invoke a shell with command. The character ! in "command" are replaced with the previous shell command. The sequence "\!" is replaced by "!".
":q or :Q"
quit reading the current file; go on to the next (if any) (same as q or Q).
(dot) repeat the previous command.
The commands take effect immediately, i.e., it is not necessary to type a carriage return. Up to the time when the command character itself is given, the user may hit the line kill character to cancel the numerical argument being formed. In addition, the user may hit the erase character to redisplay the --More-- message.
At any time when output is being sent to the terminal, the user can hit the quit key (normally control-\). Zmore will stop sending output, and will display the usual --More-- prompt. The user may then enter one of the above commands in the normal manner. Unfortunately, some output is lost when this is done, due to the fact that any characters waiting in the terminals output queue are flushed when the quit signal occurs.
The terminal is set to noecho mode by this program so that the output can be continuous. What you type will thus not show on your terminal, except for the / and ! commands.
If the standard output is not a teletype, then zmore acts just like zcat, except that a header is printed before each file.
