Updated less packages that fix one bug are now available for Red Hat EnterpriseLinux 7.

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, when a user ran “less –help” to obtain a list of valid optionsfor the “less” utility and their descriptions, the output did not include the”–use-backslash” option even though it existed and was described in the manualpage for the “less” utility. With this update, “less –help” no longer omitsthis option. (BZ#1109090)Users of less are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which fix thisbug.
Before applying this update, make sure all previously released errata relevantto your system have been applied.For details on how to apply this update, refer to:https://access.redhat.com/articles/11258Red Hat Enterprise Linux Desktop FasTrack (v. 7)
