How are you using dir() ?

Is it in the "DOS Window" ?
One option would be to just get a better console.

You also might want to look at something like ipython.

Using that, dir(foo) does not run through the pager, but
foo? does (and provides a lot of nice extras also).

Don't just search. Find. Check out the new MSN Search!
