Export a directory to all clients via NFSv4, read/write.
This exports a directory to the world in read/write mode. It is useful for quick, temporary NFS exports. Consider restricting the clients to a subnet or to specific hosts for security reasons (the client can be specified before the colon). On the client: mount -t nfs4 hostname:/ /mountpoint To terminate all of the exports (after unmounting on the client): exportfs -u -a Leave out the fsid=0 option if you don't want NFSv4. This works under recent versions of Linux.

Make 'less' behave like 'tail -f'.
Using +F will put less in follow mode. This works similar to 'tail -f'. To stop scrolling, use the interrupt. Then you'll get the normal benefits of less (scroll, etc.). Pressing SHIFT-F will resume the 'tailling'.
