SYNOPSIS

vii [ option... ]
vii -Help
vii -VERSion

DESCRIPTION

The vii command accepts input from the standard input and displays pages of the input on the crt. These pages are delimited by form-feeds (or EOF) and only as much as will fit on the screen will be displayed.

The vii command can also repeatedly execute a command, and the most recent output is displayed.

OPTIONS

The following options are understood:
-Execute string
  The given string is executed. The command should be in quotes.
-Interval number
  Commands executed with the -Execute option will be reexecuted after the given interval in seconds.
-Terminal string
  Use the terminal type given, rather than the type given in the TERM environment variable.
-Help Display some help on how to used the vii(1) command.
-VERSion Display the versin of the vii(1) command.

COMMANDS

The following commands may be used to navigate the displayed text
q Q Quit out of vii(1). As much of possible of the display is preserved. The interrupt key (usually ^C) will also cause vii(1) to quit.
^L ^R Redraw the screen. This can be useful if a background process has overwritten the display.
j ^E CR Scroll down one line.
k ^Y Scroll up one line.
J ^F SP Scroll down one screen of text.
K ^B Scroll up one screen of text.
c C ^C Show the date and time in the top right corner of the screen.
t T ^T Show the time in the top right corner of the screen.
d D ^D Show the date in the top right corner of the screen.
p P ^P Show the line position in the top right corner of the screen.

EXAMPLES

To display the process state every 15 seconds,
use the following command:
vii -e "ps axu" -i 15

If your shell does not have aliases, this shell script will do much the same thing:
#!/bin/sh
while :
do
        ps axu
        echo | tr ’\12’ ’\14’
        sleep 15
done | vii

If you don’t have a Berkeley style ps(1) command, you will need to supply options as appropriate.
