A rather "noob" question from a "noob" user. I try to get output from the "ls" alias and it spits out all at once. I pipe it to more and it does not work.

It is probably because the more function calls the more.com Get-Command moreCommandType Name ModuleName
----------- ---- ----------
Function more
Application more.com
(Get-Item function]param([string[]]$paths)
$OutputEncoding = [System.Console]::OutputEncoding

if($paths)
{
foreach ($file in $paths)
{
Get-Content $file | more.com
}
}
else
{
$input | more.com
}
The more probably relies on the WindowSize property of the host that Console Host has set but the ISE does not.$Host.name
$Host.UI.RawUI.WindowSize
ConsoleHost
Width Height
----- ------
120 50

Windows PowerShell ISE Host
Hence the boundary (screen height) is not reached in the ISE and the output does not stop until its end.
