Something like

less <- function(a){
  fn <- paste(tempdir(),"\\dataframe.txt",sep='',collapse='')   write.table(a, quote=F, file=fn)
  system(paste("less ",fn))

could perhaps help you (assuming that you have less on your computer). I agree that it would be very nice to have a built-in version... Regards
