But it looks like not work:

-bash-3.00$ export MORE=-i
-bash-3.00$ man Last
Manual entry for Last not found or not installed.
-bash-3.00$ last

I misunderstood the problem. I thought you were doing the vi search operator / within the man page. Last is not a command but last is. commands are case sensitive in UNIX so no - it will not work the way you are using it.

Yes, very good and interesting method!

-bash-3.00$ man last

Commands Reference, Volume 3, i - m

last Command

Thanks for your experience!
