What is a .LESSHST file?

A .LESSHST file is a type of file known as a Less Search History file. It is used by a program called "less," which is a tool that lets you view long texts one screen at a time on a computer, typically used in a command-line interface. The .LESSHST file stores a history of the search terms that a user has typed into the less program. This means that if you've been looking for specific words or phrases within your text documents using less, this file remembers those searches. This can be helpful for recalling past searches without needing to retype them.

To open a .LESSHST file, you can use the less program itself, which is developed by Greenwood Software. Since the file essentially contains text, you can also open it using any basic text editor like Notepad on Windows, TextEdit on macOS, or other similar programs on different operating systems. These text editors will allow you to view and edit the contents of the .LESSHST file if needed.
