Tip: To change the paging behavior of your results, set/unset your PAGER environment variable.

Paging To Screen

Author: From Brett McCormick on the mailing list 1998-04-04.

To affect the paging behavior of your psql output, set or unset your PAGER environment variable. I always have to set mine before it will pause. And of course you have to do this before starting the program.

In csh/tcsh or other C shells:

  unsetenv PAGER
while in sh/bash or other Bourne shells:
  unset PAGER
