Since I know that code is king around here, I wrote a pager program. I
am not an expert C programmer, so I might have done some things wrong.
But I think it does a good job of being minimalist.

What do you think? Would you like to put it into sbase or stali? If yes
then I can clone the sbase repo and submit a proper git patch.

#include <errno.h>
#include <stdio.h>

int main()
        const int page_size = 22;
        int count = 0;
        int ch;
        FILE *tty;

        if ((tty = fopen("/dev/tty", "a+")) == NULL)

        ch = getchar();
        while (ch != EOF) {
                if (ch == '\n') {
                        if (count >= page_size) {
                                count = 0;
                ch = getchar();
