My traceroute [v0.75] (mtr)

I discovered a small nicety with this program today.  It is undocumented but you can scroll up and down a lengthy result list using + (plus or shift+equal) and - (minus).

Also, with num lock on the plus and minus on the number pad work fine.

All this confusion started when I accidentally got it to move down the list using {ctrl}+{alt}+{shift}+{=}, but {ctrl}+{alt}+{-} could not reverse it.  Yes, mtr will scroll until there are no result showing.

If this can save anyone else the 15 minutes I lost on this today then I am glad to have helped.
