ScrollLock, though... what a pointless key.

If I have just text terminal (e.g. when admining some server) and (forgot|didn't mean) to pipe command to 'less' and the output took more than one screen it's the only way I know to scroll the screen up.

    On linux, Shift-PgUp/PgDown works for me in most terminals, including the console

      If you press ctrl-s it will stop the terminal from scrolling so you can use shift-pgup/pgdown without the terminal scrolling ahead. Press ctrl-q to un-lock the terminal.

      Your terminal program might not jump down after you press shift-pgup. I'm pretty sure aterm jumps ahead. It might even be a setting somewhere.
