MLESS(1)		FreeBSD	General	Commands Manual		      MLESS(1)

NAME
     mless -- conveniently read	messages in less(1)

SYNOPSIS
     mless [msg]

DESCRIPTION
     mless runs	less(1)	on the output of mshow(1) for the current sequence.
     Display starts with the current message, or msg if	passed.	 (See mmsg(7)
     for the message argument syntax.)

     When no messages are passed and the standard input	is from	a pipe,	`mseq
     -S' is called to set the current sequence;	mless is then run on the re-
     sulting sequence.	The first "file" of the	less instance will be the out-
     put of mscan(1).  This makes mless	convenient for use at the end of a
     pipeline.

     mless will	start less(1) and display the current message, if possible.
     Use `:n' and `:p' to read the next	(resp. previous) message.

EXIT STATUS
     The mless utility exits 0 on success, and >0 if an	error occurs.

SEE ALSO
     less(1), mscan(1),	mseq(1), mshow(1), mmsg(7)
