Hi Chet,

> Thanks for the suggestion. Right now, there's no general mechanism for readline to invoke another program.

Yes I know, I had a look at the source already, realizing that the internal paging mechanism is quite entangled within readline. I even considered trying a patch myself by passing the output to popen() to talk to the external pager.

I'm not sure if I really find the time, but just in case: Would you be inclined to accept a patch that replaces the internal pager accordingly?
