Notes

--Michael Felt (talk) 10:47, 21 November 2016 (UTC)

I am not much of a less user myself - much more a more user. However, I got tired of the escape sequences being printed as funny characters rather than the intended color-sequences. So I located and built less - to be used with git.

After installing git be sure to tell it the pager is less with

# mkdir -p /var/git/etc
# git config --system core.pager /opt/bin/less
