Linux more command

More is exactly same like less

Important points:
Press Enter key to scroll down line by line
Use d to go the next page
Use b to go the previous page
Use / to search a word in the file.
Use v to go vi mode where we can edit file and save it.
To quit from less command press ESC. Then, :q to come back to shell mode.

Examples:

[root@localhost ~]# more /etc/passwd
