Need example for executing "pg" command

I need an example of how one is supposed to correctly execute the pg command.  When I use the CAT command to view a file I have a hard time because the information scrolls and since I am connected through a hyperterminal it gets to be real frustrating going back to try to decipher what just passed.  I tried executing the command but I don't have the right syntax and I can't seem to find an example.

'pg myfile'
You might enjoy the 'more' command.  Example:  'more myfile'.  Other siblings would include 'less', 'head', and 'tail'.

Just type in

pg file

You press the "Enter" key to get the next page.

Do a 'man pg' to see the navigation options.

with pg you can give
:h

and you have help

-------------------------------------------------------
  h                     help
  q or Q                quit
  <blank> or <newline>  next page
  l                     next line
  d or <^D>             display half a page more
  . or <^L>             redisplay current page
  f                     skip the next page forward
  n                     next file
  p                     previous file
  $                     last page
  w or z                set window size and display next page
  s savefile            save current file in savefile
  /pattern/             search forward for pattern
  ?pattern? or
  ^pattern^             search backward for pattern
  !command              execute command

Most commands can be preceeded by a number, as in:
+1<newline> (next page); -1<newline> (previous page); 1<newline> (page 1).

See the manual page for more detail.

Thanks to all of you for the help.  The example that I needed I finally found in the man pg so thanks to tintin for that suggestion.  I was running a netstat and I did not know how to make it run one page at a time.  The syntax is: netstat -a | pg
