pg for Linux


I'm used to working on Solaris and it has a pager utility called pg. I know about more and less but I am used to pg. Is there a pg for Linux and if so where can I find it.

If it matters I'm using Suse v10.

Thanks

slackware has it - I'm sure you can get it for suse.

It's part of:

I've never heard of pg what is the difference between using this and less or more.

Just had a quick read of the man page (Ubuntu 9.04 had it by default) and it seems to do a similar job.

Yes it is very similar, but I'm used to the syntax of pg and since it is something I use a lot I'd like to use it on Linux as well
