Version: less 481 (POSIX regular expressions) Source: http://www.gnu.org/software/less/ Depends on:
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
