Do more with less on Linux terminal

"Basic Usage: The basic usage of less is: less filename

"This command simply open the file (readonly) and show it on screen, you can scroll up and down with arrow keys (and other shortcut) and do search with vi syntax; less does not have to read the entire input file before starting, so with large input files it starts up faster than text editors like vi."
