LP, the Larch Prover -- The page-mode setting
The page-mode setting controls whether or not LP pauses to enable users
to read its output before it is scrolled off the screen.
<set-page-mode-command> ::= set page-mode ( on | off )
set page-mode on
When page-mode is off (the default), LP does not pause during output.
When it is on, LP displays output a screen at a time. After LP displays
each screenful of output, it prompts the user with --More-- to type a
character indicating what to do next. The options are as follows:
Most Unix systems also allow users to control output is by using the ^S
and ^Q keys; ^S stops output, and ^Q resumes printing.
space display next screenful
return display next line
digit display next digit lines
d display next half screenful
u display continuously until next user interaction
q display nothing until next user interaction
