Tk::More - a 'more' or 'less' like text widget
use Tk::More; $more = $parent->More(...text widget options ...); $more->Load(FILENAME);
Tk::More is a readonly text widget with additional key bindings as found in UNI* command line tools
less. As in
more an additional status/command line is added at the bottom.

invoke help window
- Name: fixedFont
- Class: FixedFont
- Switch: -font
Set the font of the viewer widget. This is by default a fixed font.
- Name: searchCase
- Class: SearchCase
- Switch: -searchcase
Set if searching should be done case-insensitive. Defaults to true.
- Switch: -helpcommand
Sets the command for the "h" (help) key.
- Load($file, %args)
Load $file into the widget. %args may be one of the following
- -encoding => $encoding
Assume the encoding of the file to be $encoding. If none is given, then assume no encoding (which is equivalent to iso-8859-1).
Convenience method to add the bindinds Key-q and Control-Key-q to close the Toplevel window containing this More widget.
Besides that most of more bindings are not implemented. This bugs me most (high to low priority):
* better status line implementation
* Cursor movement: up/down move displayed area regardless where insert cursor is
* add History, Load, Search (also as popup menu)
