Pager utility that speaks Vietnamese

A paginator similar to “more” or “pg”, but much more powerful and speaks Vietnamese.

VNless is a port of a very old version of GNU’s less that suports the display of files written in the Vietnamese language using the VISCII VIetnamese Standard Code for Information Interchange encoding, RFC 1456.

VNless should be run w/in a VNterm or simular terminal emulator supporting Vietnamese language encodings.
