Ooooh nice to know, thank you. I am in a process of learning help
system on Multics and trying to pipe full help on some subject via
something akin to the /usr/bin/less, because typing "y<enter>" to
display every following four or six lines quickly gets boring. Since
even MSDOS had MORE command, I hope to be able to find something.

Either this or... all right, I can type r in help prompt and get
everything dumped on terminal. Cool. I must admit, help system on VMS
was about the nicest one I have ever used.
