Follow-up Comment #11, bug #53217 (project octave):

>>  There are plenty other cases where the pager present leads new-users to
wonder what is happening (leading to bug reports to revisit). 

Seconded, I'd be in favor of having the pager off by default. My bet is that
most people won't miss it, the others are cli people that can add a "more on"
in their .octaverc. I see two advantages with paged output:
* Interrupts endless outputs I generate by mistake (e.g. forgetting a
semicolon). This can also be done with CTRL+C, just not as elegant.
* Lets me inspect long series of data. To do this, there will now be the much
more convenient variable editor.
