help --help or some such

When running Cygnus, and get --help on a command, say:

ls --help

the page scrolls right to the end of the description.  (Try "diff --help"
for an acute example of this.)

How can I use "--help" so I get one page at a time?  Or do I use another
command to get the same effect?
