Or

(defun eshell/emacs (&rest files)
  (if (null files)
      (bury-buffer)
    (mapc #'find-file
          (mapcar #'expand-file-name
                  (eshell-flatten-list (nreverse files))))))

(defun eshell/less (&rest files)
  (mapc #'view-file
        (mapcar #'expand-file-name
                (eshell-flatten-list (nreverse files)))))

(defalias 'eshell/more 'eshell/less)

And just type "emacs <file>*" or "less <file>*".
