Hello,  I just read the "man" for the ls command.  I didn't see an
option for pause, as in DOS (dir/p).  There are times when it would be a
great help when, viewing more than one page of files in a directory.
I hope this is not something, I over looked.

There is no such option, you can pipe the output of ls into your pager for this. Of course this enables you to use all the features of said pager, e.g. searching or scrolling backwards.

ls | less
