UNIX:

% man more

-c
Clears before displaying. Redraws the screen  instead
of  scrolling  for  faster  displays.  This option is
ignored if the terminal does not have the ability  to
clear to the end of a line.

-lines
Displays the indicated  number  of  lines  in
each  screenful, rather than the default (the
number of lines in the terminal  screen  less
two).

% man less

-c or –clear-screen
Causes full screen repaints to be painted from the  top
line  down.   By default, full screen repaints are done
by scrolling from the bottom of the screen.

-C or –CLEAR-SCREEN
The -C option is like -c, but  the  screen  is  cleared
before it is repainted.

-[z]n or –window=n
Changes the default scrolling window size to  n  lines.
The default is one screenful.  The z and w commands can
also be used to change the window size.  The “z” may be
omitted for compatibility with more. If the number n is
negative, it indicates n lines less  than  the  current
screen  size.   For example, if the screen is 24 lines,
-z-4 sets the scrolling window to  20  lines.   If  the
screen  is  resized  to  40 lines, the scrolling window
automatically changes to 36 lines.
