You mention Activestate, so I don't know whether the above suggestion of checking $ENV{'PAGER'} will work under that (it being a unixy convention) but one way or another you should be able to use the DOS pager more. RTFM, but either you can redirect the text to more, or write a temporary file, then more \tmp\mytmpfile.txt with a system call.
