More can be used on a text file by typing more filename or can be used to display the output from another program with the use of the pipe symbol by typing command | more. For example,
ls | morewill list as many filenames from the working directory that will fit on the screen and prompt the user with -More- if there are more filenames to be displayed.
You may want to check to see if your system has less installed. It's a cleverly named more clone that has a number of enhancements.
