Using the More Option at a Command Prompt
The information in this article applies to:
- Microsoft Windows 2000 Professional
When you use a command with the "|more" option at a command prompt, pressing ENTER advances only to the next line, rather than advancing by a full screen.
Pressing ENTER advances to the next line of text. Pressing SPACEBAR advances to the next screen.
This behavior is by design.
For notes about using the "|more" option, type more /? for usage notes. The following information is displayed:
MORE [/E [/C] [/P] [/S] [/Tn] [+n]]< [drive:][path]filename command-name | MORE [/E [/C] [/P] [/S] [/Tn] [+n]] MORE /E [/C] [/P] [/S] [/Tn] [+n] [files]<BR/> [drive:][path]filename Specifies a file to display one screen at a time.<BR/> command-name Specifies a command whose output will be displayed.<BR/> /E Enable extended features /C Clear screen before displaying page /P Expand FormFeed characters /S Squeeze multiple blank lines into a single line /Tn Expand tabs to n spaces (default 8) Switches can be present in the MORE environment variable. +n Start displaying the first file at line n files List of files to be displayed.
