How To Scroll Processes In top?

I'm using top to view processes. But, I do not know how to scroll down the list to view what is not showed in the terminal window. Anyone know how to do this?

top along with -n N can do it.

That is;

Code:
top -n 1 -b

But it will show the output only once .. If you want to do it N times, replace 1 with N.
