I'm taking an Intro to Linux class in college. Our teacher wants us to show a command that can be used for this question:
"Display the contents of a file with paging control that provides line-by-line navigation."
He said the only correct answer is "less". But can't less and more both operate in the same way? You can go line-by-line (Enter) or page-by-page (Space) with both correct?
I guess I should have just asked if more and less (sorry I'm not sure how to format these words and images as other posters do) can operate relatively the same way in that they can both go through a file or directory line-by-line or page-by-page (screenful at a time). They either can or they can't I would assume.
From my experience, reading (I have a Linux+ book that also states they can both operate the same), and comments like Anthony's, it appears that they do both operate in that way.
