Does less have an incremental search?
I'm on xubuntu.
Unfortunately the less pager does not have this functionality. The only search options available are / for a forward search, and ? for a backward search.

You can use view (vim in read only mode) as a replacement for less.. vim has incremental search, just add:
to your .vimrc
I added incremental search to less and pushed it to a fork on GitHub.
