TITLE

VERSION

        1.6Z

DESCRIPTION

        Less is a flexible Text Reader, descended from the Unix
        program of the same name.  All of the Unix features are
        present in this Amiga port, plus some Amiga-specific
        enhancements.

FEATURES

        1. Forward and backward movement through the file, by
           lines, pages, half pages, percentage, etc.

        2. File being viewed may be larger than avaiable memory.
           Can view multiple input files of any cumulative size,
           since they are read seqentially.  Works well with
           pipes, too.

        3. Searches based upon Unix-style regular expressions.

        4. Flexible positioning of output window, or you may
           choose to use the existing CLI or AUX: window for output.

SPECIAL REQUIREMENTS

        OS release 1.2 or newer is required; Less has been tested
        with OS releases through 3.0.

        Distribution is archived with lha so program to
        un-archive them is needed.

UPDATE
        This is a small update to Less 1.5Z, which received limited
        distribution, and a major update to version 1.4Z from Fish
        disk 511.
