Trying to find out how to use case-insensitive searches in
less I found this on serverfault.
That seems to perfectly answer my question. The problem is: It doesn't work like that here (openSUSE 13.1; less 458).
I had aliased
less -WiNS but I changed that. But even calling it as
command less file does not change anything. I have checked with
ps that there is no
-i option in the command line any more.
As the answer says the
less help (pressing
h) states that I can use
less, too. If I use that once then
less tells me it had changed to case-insensitive search (that is kind of correct: nothing changes). If I use it twice then
less tells me it had turned to case-sensitive search. And right, then it works as it should from the start. Giving
-i twice on the command line does not work, though.
What's up here?
