Output Pager

MDB provides a built-in output pager. The output pager is enabled if the debugger's standard output is a terminal device. Each time a command is executed, mdb pauses after each screenful of output is written and displays a pager prompt:

>> More [<space>, <cr>, q, n, c, a] ?

The following key sequences are recognized by the pager:


Display the next screenful of output.

a, A

Abort the current top-level command and return to the prompt.

c, C

Continue displaying output without pausing at each screenful, until the current top-level command is complete.


Display the next line of output.

q, Q, ^C, ^\

Quit (abort) the current dcmd only.
