7.2.5 Pager

When a command produces output that contains more lines than there are rows on the terminal, dico attempts to use a pager program to display it. The name (and arguments) of the pager program are taken from the dico internal variable, or, if it is not set, from the PAGER environment variable.

The dico pager setting can be examined or changed using the pager command. When used without arguments, it displays the current setting:

dico> .pager
(Pager set from environment)

When used with a single argument, it sets the pager:

dico> .pager "less -R"

The argument ‘-’ (a dash) disables pager.
