less 429-2 (ia64 binary) in ubuntu lucid
This package provides "less", a file pager (that is, a memory-efficient
utility for displaying text one screenful at a time). Unlike the basic
pager "more", it is capable of both backward and forward navigation
through a file. As part of the GNU project, it is widely regarded as
the standard pager on UNIX-derived systems.
Also provided are "lessecho", a simple utility for ensuring arguments
with spaces are correctly quoted; "lesskey", a tool for modifying the
standard (vi-like) keybindings; and "lesspipe", a filter for specific
types of input, such as .doc or .txt.gz files.
