Subject description: is there a place where I can get a full featured less?
 

Calling help in ipython less is used to display result but fails in my Wary 030 (this does not happen in Puppeee for example)

Code:

# ipython --help

less: invalid option -- 'r'
BusyBox v1.16.0 (2010-01-29 20:42:59 GMT-8) multi-call binary.

Usage: less [-EMNmh~I?] [FILE]...

View a file or list of files. The position within files can be
changed, and files can be manipulated in various ways.

Options:
   -E   Quit once the end of a file is reached
   -M,-m   Display status line with line numbers
      and percentage through the file
   -N   Prefix line number to each line
   -I   Ignore case in all searches
   -~   Suppress ~s displayed past the end of the file


I wish I can find a version of less with this -r option so i can continue using advanced ipython help and do not rely on python standard help (which uses More)

Any tips?

Hope you realize a Wary 090 is out.
Maybe try this one and if unsuccessful report in the wary 090 thread.

You may had read that a lot of people have problems with wifi connections dropping in ALL new puplets, Wary 090 isn't different. I'm one of those having problems.

That's why I cannot upgrade... Sad

Other tips are much appreciated, thanks.

This is what I always do if I need some extra libs or headers :

Location Bar At The Browser :

Debian Package MyPackage

Starting Google Search

Go to the debian site and start the search ( mostly package content ).

I do not know if debian less has got the -r option but there is also a link to

http://www.greenwoodsoftware.com/less/

(and of course do not forget to rename less to less-BB-NOTUSED)

Thanks Karl, I followed your link, downloaded and compiled, now ipython shows help flawlessly, I made a pet of less if someone needs it.

Cheers
