command to read from bottom to top (like more)


what is the command that I can read from bottom to top? similar to "more"

"tail" doesn't have a next page for scrolling up more.

Use less - it can go up or down.

Remember - less is more

Actually you can go back with more also, just use the 'b' key. Keybindings for more can be found from more's manpage. Less is probably more convenient though.
