I would add even the linked solution from StackOverflow.com does not work reliably for me. Try to get at the end of numpy document - text vanishes and possibly lose chars displaying in terminal. Need to reset it.
Modified pydoc's pipepager method this way:
def pipepager(text, cmd):
"""Page through text by feeding it to another program."""
#pipe = os.popen(cmd, 'w')
pipep = subprocess.Popen(cmd, stdin=subprocess.PIPE, shell=True)
pass # Ignore broken pipes caused by quitting the pager program.
Works for me so far, although the exact cause of issue with the stock/default pydoc is still not known.
