|more I press space to get another screenful. But with some commands space just does nothing, and I need to actually keep doing SPACE-ENTER to scroll forward a screen at a time. Both
less behave the same.
On this machine this command shows both behaviours:
php -i |more;tree -A |more
With PHP I need to press ENTER after each space; with
tree I just press SPACE and it scrolls.
I've tried a few tricks, such as
2>&1 and using bash, but no luck, e.g.
bash -c "php -i 2>&1;tree -A" | more
Joining the commands like that means SPACE-ENTER is needed for the whole output. So I'm wondering if PHP is outputting some control character that upsets
I've tried another machine, over SSH, and
php -i does not have this behaviour.
LESS set to
-FRX. However I've cleared that variable and the behaviour is the same.)
This is just a minor irritant, so I'm not going to start pulling the two systems apart looking for the difference... just wondered if it rang a bell with anyone.
