Juniper's JUNOS Emacs style cursor movement/Page manipulation

Remember Juniper's JUNOS is heavily influenced by Unix, afterall it does sit on top of FreeBSD. You can use EMACS commands for cursor movement, which include:

Ctrl-a  Moves the cursor to the beginning of the command line, back to the prompt
Ctrl-e Moves the cursor to the end of the command line
Ctrl-b Moves the cursor back one character
Ctrl-k Delete everything from the current cursor position to the end of the line
Ctrl-x Delete the entrie line.
Ctrl-l Bring back the current line
Ctrl-p Scroll back through command history (analogous to up arrow)
Ctrl-n Scroll forward through command history (analogous to down arrow)
Ctrl-r Search command history for a string

Just like in GNU less you can

say you run a show, this has been pageanated, that is split into pages if the output of the command shows more than one screen. You can go all the way to end by hitting
similarly you can return to the first of the output by typing

You can also search for a string in the page by
/(your search string)
