Less and More

What is the difference between the commands "less" and "more"?

As you know "less" and "more" both allow you to view a file, however "less" has some advantages.

The main advantage of using "less" is that you can reverse scroll through a file and you don't need to wait for "less" to load the whole file into memory before you can start to view it.
