Hmm,

less on my system has no such option:

$ less
less: missing filename
BusyBox v1.28.4 (2018-12-31 18:05:13 UTC) multi-call binary.

Usage: less [-EIMmNSh~] [FILE]...

View FILE (or stdin) one screenful at a time

-E Quit once the end of a file is reached
-I Ignore case in all searches
-M,-m Display status line with line numbers
and percentage through the file
-N Prefix line number to each line
-S Truncate long lines
-~ Suppress ~s displayed past EOF
