Fedora Core 1 Update: less-382-1.1
Posted on: 03/09/2004 04:23 PM

FEDORA-2004-089
2004-03-09

Name : less
Version : 382
Release : 1.1
Summary : A text file browser similar to more, but better.
Description :
The less utility is a text file browser that resembles more, but has more capabilities. Less allows you to move backwards in the file as well as forwards. Since less doesn't have to read the entire input file before it starts, less starts up more quickly than text editors (for example, vi).

You should install less because it is a basic utility for viewing text files, and you'll use it frequently.

---------------------------------------------------------------------
Update Information:

This package contains an updated version of less, which is supposed to fix segfaults on certain types of files (bugzilla #117118<!-- -->).

Support for non-UTF8 japanese charsets has been removed, therefore it isn't possible anymore to view non-UTF8 japanese texts with less by setting the JLESSCHARSET variable. See bugzilla #115079 and #116902 to read about the reasons for the removal of the iso254 patch.
