to display help page by page and vi [Solved]

Postby mrizzone » Tue Feb 19, 2013 2:07

Hello!

Have two questions:

When display too long --help texts, how i can display them page by page or do a page up scroll?

Second, I'm reading the book published by linuxcommands.org, here is described the vi editor; have Sabayon a similar editor?

Thanks!

Both support scrolling by pressing Enter (one line) or spacebar (one page), too ;-)
