;;; Commentary:

;; View file like a simple `less'. Provide limited less keys, mainly j,
;; k, f, b, g, G, etc.

;; Put this file into your load-path and the following into your
;; ~/.emacs:
;;            (require 'less)
;; Then use `M-x less-minor-mode' to toggle `less-minor-mode'.

;; There's also a `view-less.el' in XEmacs. But it does too much for
;; me, i just wanna less keys like j, k, f, b, g, G, not to mess
;; with other keys in major mode.

;;; Change Log:

;; v 0.1 [2005/09/07 01:41:01] Initial version.

;;; Code:

(define-minor-mode less-minor-mode
  "Toggle less-minor-mode.
