Unlike other paging programs, most is capable of displaying an arbitrary number of windows as long as each window occupies at least two screen lines. Each window may contain the same file or a different file. In addition, each window has its own mode.
In addition to displaying ordinary text files, most can also display binary files as well as files with arbitrary ascii characters.
Compiling MOST requires an ansi compatable c compiler. It compiles fine with `cc' on Ultrix and VMS, and `gcc' on a sun4. In addition you MUST have a copy of the S-Lang library. This library is available from ftp://space.mit.edu/pub/davis/slang. INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS On Unix, you should be able to simply type: ./configure; make at the Unix prompt. more»
