You (likely) don't need to do anything. You're already using it.
As I tried to explain before, the man
command itself doesn't display the page; it just grabs the page you want from the database and formats it. Then it automatically
outputs the results to the default pager, unless you override it. This should be less
, unless you've changed it somewhere.
If I'm reading it correctly, the man
command looks for the following to determine which pager to use, in order.
an equivalent setting in the $MANOPT
Use one of these if you want to override the default.
Read the man
man page for more.
Also read the man page of the pager it's using for how to use its search options.
