If you have a look at the all-user powershell profile, you'll see that "help"
is just a automatically defined function:
get-help $args | out-host -paging
Everytime a cmdlet prints out too much text, you can pipe it to "out-host
You can also pipe to the function "more", which has the same effect and is
easier to type.
