less(1) tweaks

Estimated read time: 1 minutes

First, to allow latin{1,2,whatever} accents in the pager to be non-escaped:

export LESSCHARSET="iso8859"

Second, I use:

# F: quit if input is less then one page
# M: no more-like short prompt
# R: accept colors
# X: don't throw away the output after quit under x
export LESS="FMRX"

Finally to send utf8 and other exotic chars in latin2 to stdout in git (OK, this is not strictly related):

git config i18n.logOutputEncoding latin2
