Stupid question... too much output in terminal
 
So I was curious about Lynx, and upon typing 'lynx --help', roughly 12 or so pages' worth of text fly by and I'm at the bottom with my root@localhost# cursor blinking. So my question is this... how can I limit the amount of output so that I can just push enter for the next page, or how can I scroll up in the terminal?

I know I could just use the bash, but I like the old-school feeling you get with a terminal, heh..

<shift> + PgUp
<shift> + PgDn

Scrolls in a console.

Just typing lynx and enter would give you some help in the form of a web page.
