Incidentally, do you know why you get the other behaviour: being stuck inside the subshell for one command?

Ah, I see. Seems obvious now. Is there (out of curiosity) a way of using brackets or something around the first way?

comment Is there any way to exit “less” without clearing the screen?
Thanks. For those wondering: -R is "Like -r, but only ANSI "color" escape sequences are output in "raw" form. Unlike -r, the screen appearance is maintained correctly in most cases."

comment Why is PATH reset in a sudo command?
