Description

I've created a POSIXified and cleaned up version of less, which conforms strictly POSIX requirements for more.1.

This lives at github.com/gdamore/less-fork

Its been incorporated into OpenBSD as well.

This RFE proposes to integrate this into illumos-gate, replacing /usr/bin/more and /usr/xpg4/bin/more. It would also deliver a /usr/bin/less and lesskey.
