Execute a command repeatedly and scroll the output

Vii pronounced seven is a simple program which accepts input from the standard input and displays pages of the input on the terminal.

These pages are delimited by form-feeds or EOF. The display can be scrolled if the output is wider or longer than the screen.

Vii can also repeatedly execute a command at a configurable interval and the most recent output is displayed. This is useful for status monitoring where the command itself does not have a repeatable or curses interface.
