IO::Pager::Page(3) Emulate IO::Page, pipe STDOUT to a pager if STDOUT is a TTY


Pipes STDOUT to a pager if STDOUT is a TTY


IO::Pager was designed to programmatically decide whether or not to point the STDOUT file handle into a pipe to program specified in the PAGER environment variable or one of a standard list of pagers.


    use IO::Pager::Page;
    # use I::P::P first, just in case another module sends output to STDOUT
  A bunch of text later

If you wish to forgo the potential for a Broken Pipe foible resulting from the user exiting the pager prematurely, load IO::Pager::Page like so:

  use IO::Pager::Page hush=>1;
