how to control linux comman output by page/window when using modinfo and lsmod


I am using openfiler

I am getting too many results when I try modinfo and lsmod. Can I control the lines output of these commands. What I mean is if I can control getting 20 lines at once and hit enter and get another 20 lines.

Can I control the output by page/window? what I mean is if I can get a full window and click enter and get another full window?

if possible, please, provide  a sample using the commands.

Just pipe it to 'more', you can do this with just about anything...

cat /var/log/messages | more
dmesg | more
modinfo | more

If you want to send the results of your 'command' to a file instead so you can then browse through it try:
dmesg > /home/me/file.txt
(a single > overwrites the file, a double >> appends to the file)
netstat >> /home/me/netstat.txt
