Pager program similar to more and less

Most is a paging program that displays, one windowful at a time, the contents of a file on a terminal. A status line at the bottom of the screen displays the file name, the current line number and the percentage of the file so far displayed.

In addition to displaying ordinary text files, most can also display binary files as well as files with arbitrary ascii characters.
