comment 'less' doesn't clear screen after quit
As mentioned in the question, this only started happening after I defined export TERM=xterm, so I believe this is not a problem of less definitions.

comment 'less' doesn't clear screen after quit
@peth: This really isn't a duplicate question. As for your question, no matter how I play with the command line options, the last page always remains on the screen. I don't think this has something to do with the less configuration since this only started happening after I defined export TERM=xterm. Thanks for your help!

comment Using screen, commands like less and man don't clear the screen afterwards
I'm using Mac and I don't have an altscreen command. Any other way of doing this?
