AmigaOS 4.0 - About OS4 - Commands

MORE Obsolete
Purpose: To display the contents of an ASCII file.
Format: MORE <file name>
Template: FILENAME/K
Path: C:MORE

This command became obsolete with AmigaOS 4.0 Final - details shown for information only

MORE displays the contents of the file <file name>. If the file is not in the current directory, you must specify the complete path. MOREalso accepts input from a PIPE. If you don't specify a file, MORE will display a file requester.

MORE accepts the following commands:

<Space> Next Page (More)
<Return> Next Line
q or Ctrl+C Quit
h Help
/string Search for string (case sensitive)
.string Search for string (NOT case sensitive)
n Find next occurrence of string
Ctrl+L Refresh window
< First Page
> Last Page
%N Move N% into file
b or <BackSpace> Previous Page (Less)
E Edit using editor set in ENV:EDITOR
Since standard input from a PIPE is unknown, the Previous Page, Last Page and N% into file commands are disabled when the MORE input is from a PIPE.

Example 1:

3.OS4:> MORE

Enter filename, or <Return> to exit:
MORE with no arguments reponds with a requester.

Example 2:

3.OS4:> MORE RAM:Xyz displays the contents of Xyz in RAM:.

Example 3:

3.OS4:> MORE < PIPE:pipename displays the contents of the PIPE.
