tp - Man Page
a pure perl pager
tp -[JSenrs] [-cols] [-f STR] [-j|+ #] [-p|+/ STR] [FILE]...
Exit at end of file.
- -f STR
If defined, the pager will pause when the character sequence specified by STR is encountered in the input text.
The default value when enabled is formfeed i.e; ^L; in order to mimic traditional behavior of "1" in more, but due to the pecularities of Getopt::Long> you need to use the -- argument separator in order to to trigger this e.g;
tp -f -- foo #pauses on lines in foo with "^L" in them
You might also supply a regular expression as STR e.g;
tp -f '[ie]t' bar #pauses on lines in bar with "it" or "et" in them
Add a column with markers indicating which lines match a search expression.
Display line numbering. Toggleable at run time with #.
Send raw control characters from input unadulterated to the terminal. By default, chracters other than tab and newline will be converted to caret notation e.g; ^@ for null or ^L for form feed.
Squeeze multiple blank lines into one.
Do not fold long lines.
- -[ or --scrollbar
Display an interactive scrollbar in the right-most column.
- -$ or --tail
Keep checking the displayed file for new content. Only available when paging a single file.
Set the number of columns for the pager.
If absent, the terminal is queried directly with Term::ReadKey if loaded or
tput, and if these fail it defaults to 80.
C- is Control,
M- is Meta/Alt,
S- is Shift, and
\d+ is a sequence of digits

toggle raw/cooked output - C
tp checks the LESS, MORE, TPOPT, TERM and TERMCAP variables.
The TPOPT variable is used to set options explicitly for tp, by concatenating undecorated options together e.g; Sr for squished raw output.
LESS and MORE are checked for options that tp supports, and if detected they are enabled.
