I use --help option a lot. It's annoying how it jumps to the end with help. It can be done with |less option. I want |less to be my default option. Can I use less as default paging for --help?

I use Debian Jessie with LXDE.

Behavior of --help depends on a program and not the shell. So | less is the easiest option.

less is built in man and info.
