Display manual pages with a little bit of color

OpenBSD is one of the best documented operation systems out there. There is basically a man page for everything on the system. By default the manual is shown in one colour. For most cases this is okay, but if you use a different pager you can get some colour as well. This makes it even easier to read.

To get some colour in your manual you have to replace the pager less with a tool called most. You just have to install most and then set your PAGER variable to most. Then you continue by calling man <name> as always but now you get some nice colours.

# pkg_add most
# export PAGER="most"

I would recommend putting the export into your .kshrc or .bashrc file so you don't have to do it every time you open a terminal.
