Question CLI question


I was going through the man pages, but had trouble finding anything that seemed equivalent to the dir /p command from dos. In large directories having a page break is helpful.

Or if you're quick, you can use ctrl-s and ctrl-q or scroll lock to pause the display. Piping the output to less is much more convenient however.
