==== Terminal pagers ====
  
Power users use terminal emulators quite often, so unsurprisingly lots of X11 terminal emulators exist. Most of them emulate Xterm that emulates VT102, which emulates typewriter, so you will have to read the [[Wikipedia:Terminal emulator|Wikipedia article]] and [https://google.com/search?q=linux+terminal+emulators other sources] to get a hold on these things.
