    Unanswered: Which shell ?

    I posted another thread about "vi" and I later realize
    that this is actually a shell question.

    When I type "man time", the manual shows up at my window
    but if I quit it ("q") my terminal goes back to the command
    line and the text is gone.

    Does someone remember how to stop this ?

    Thxs,

    S.

    What's your default program as pager? On Linux, "less" will clear the screen, and "more" won't. On AIX, both versions of these programs don't clear the screen in my installations.
