command "more" and help pages RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi.

    I found a strange thing with console(cmd.exe).

    When I give console applications an option "/?", they show a page of help texts at a time.

    And if I want to get messages on console page by page, I can use "more" and pipe.

    Here's the strange thing I met. When I enter

    C:>more | for /?

    it doesn't show next pages immediately since I see 2nd page.

    I see this on Windows XP or Windows 7.

    Thanks for reading.
