Updated less packages that fix one bug are now available for Red Hat EnterpriseLinux 6.

The “less” utility is a text file browser that resembles “more”, but allowsusers to move backwards in the file as well as forwards. Since “less” does notread the entire input file at startup, it also starts more quickly than ordinarytext editors.This update fixes the following bug:* Previously, the lesspipe script returned incorrect exit status codes. As aconsequence, the less utility failed to decompress empty files that had beencompressed with the gzip utility, and an unwanted message was displayed. Withthis update, a pipe character (“|”) has been added in front of the LESSOPENenvironment variable to enforce a new default behavior of lesspipe. For backwardcompatibility, lesspipe has the same behavior if LESSOPEN remains unchanged. Asa result, the less utility now detects and displays empty files correctly.(BZ#615303)Users of less are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which fix thisbug.
