How to get one page at a time?

In DOS, one could do dir/p and get one page at a time. Is there a way to do this in UBUNTU terminal mode, particularly for the Help displays?

You could pipe it through less... or more... or most even!
$someprogram --help | less
$someprogram --help | more
$someprogram --help | most
