Nuts. I was hoping for something like +G or +F that wouldn't cause less to fully block.

Falling back to the ol' dosomething >& file &; less file approach.

Thanks as always ikegami.

    producer > file & less file ; rm file
    doesn't work since less isn't expecting the file to change.
    producer > file ; less file ; rm file
    works, but less will only start up once the producer has ended.

      Oops. I'd typo'ed. I meant 'tail -f' where I said 'less'.
