    Simple query


    Hello all,

    I'm new to this forum & new to UNIX.
    Please don't feel bad if my question looks silly . .

    I was trying running some of options in LESS command, and now the display is completely changed while seeing results..

    For example , if I execute ls -lt command, the cursor is moving to command prompt at bottom and result is displaying on top of it, truncating 3 lines at top most . ..

    please suggest . .

    -Ravi

    It may not help, but try:
    Code:

    The moon is my sister, the dawn is my brother.
    The moon on my left and the dawn on my right.
    My brother, good morning: my sister, good night.
