Get Man to Stop Clearing the Screen On exit

Someone put their head in a funnel for this one.

If you've recently did any man page reading on Ubuntu/Linux (10.04 LTE), you've likely been frustrated by the screen being cleared -- especially after spending a large amount of time reading the man page.

NOTE: If you just want to change just the behaviour of man(1), use MANPAGER instead of PAGER.

Add to your .bashrc (or .profile):

    export PAGER="/usr/bin/less -X"

According to man 1 less

       -X or --no-init
              Disables  sending  the  termcap  initialization and deinitialization strings to the
              terminal.  This is sometimes desirable if the deinitialization  string  does  some‐
              thing unnecessary, like clearing the screen.
