Nothing?  I'd expect it to complain it can't exec `less -E'.

They may not be clear.  I think it's looking to exec a program called
`less -E', e.g. /usr/bin/less -E, and no such file exists.

Either set LESS in your environment, or if you don't want it changed for
everything, create a little shell script in ~/bin, e.g. myshowproc, that
does `exec less -E "$@"'.
