Excuse the bang, but the pscx install should not not not redefine the "help" alias.

What's the first thing I do after an install? Enter "help pscx", of course.

What do I get? A few lines of text, followed by an (end) prompt. A UI that seems unresponsive to up, down, pageup, pagedown, escape, enter, and spacebar.

I'm sure that "less" is quite popular in some circles, and installing it is fine, Just don't take over the alias that is one of the most-used. Take man, that's fine, users of man are more likely to be familiar with less.
