NAME

mlessinteractive wrapper around mshow

SYNOPSIS

mless [msg]

DESCRIPTION

mless runs less(1) on the output of mshow(1) for the current sequence. Display starts with the current message, or msg if passed. See mmsg(7) for the message argument syntax.
When no messages are passed and standard input is from a pipe, ‘mseq -S’ will be called to set the current sequence and mless is run on the resulting sequence. The first "file" of the less instance will be the output of mscan(1). This makes mless convenient for use at the end of a pipe.
mless will start less(1) displaying the current message if possible. Use ‘:n’ and ‘:p’ to read the next (resp. previous) message.

EXIT STATUS

The mless utility exits 0 on success, and >0 if an error occurs.
