Hi,

With the recent adoption of $PAGER in `guix search` I'm experiencing an issue. The some of the firsts lines are not shown if the output long enough to cover the full screen so I can't see the first package name. It forces me to scroll down and up again.

If I run `guix search | less` works as expected.

Other paged commands like git work as expected too.

Is this happening to others too?

Best,
Ekaitz

Yes!  It looks like (at least) rendering ‘description’ doesn't 
account for the length of the "description: " prefix itself, 
making the first line too long.  That confuses less and/or makes 
it wrap non-deterministically.

After invoking ‘guix search foo’, name and version are missing, 
and:

--8<---------------cut here---------------start------------->8---
description: This package aims to provide a one-stop solution to 
requirements for footnotes.  It offers: Multiple footnote
+ apparatus superior to that of `manyfoot'.  Footnotes can be 
formatted in separate paragraphs, or be run into a
--8<---------------cut here---------------end--------------->8---

After scrolling down and then up:

--8<---------------cut here---------------start------------->8---
description: This package aims to provide a one-stop solution to 
requirements for footnotes.  It offers: Multiple footnoteus 
superior to that of `manyfoot'.  Footnotes can be formatted in 
separate paragraphs, or be run into a
--8<---------------cut here---------------end--------------->8---

(‘footnoteus’).  The description ‘shrinks’ by 2 lines, making room 
for the name and version fields at the top.

Kind regards,

T G-R

Indeed, that seems to be the case.  Apparently
31522dfa1951c655898afb37eda58c048d1c2338 fixes it.  Lemme know!

I have been able to reproduce this. If I page down, and then back up, I 
can see the first line. I don't have any ideas at the moment about what 
could be causing this.

I'm using GNOME-terminal.

Best,
Jack

Oops, I now see* that Tobias already replied with better information. 
Thanks, as always Tobias!

Best,
