\ This add-on is for those poor souls whose terminals cannot scroll
\ back but who want to read the output of 'words' at their leisure.
\ currently this is very primitive: it just counts newlines, and only
\ allows continuing for another page (and of course, terminating
\ processing by sending a signal (^C))
\ Some things to do:
\ allow continuing for one line (Enter)
\ count lines produced by wraparound (note tabs and backspaces)
\ allow continuing silently
\ fancy features like searching, scrollback etc.
\ one more-or-less simple way to achieve all this is to
\ popen("less","w") and output there. Before getting the next `key`,
\ we would perform a pclose. This idea due to Marcel Hendrix.
