What does Linux less -A or –SEARCH-SKIP-SCREEN option do?

Causes all forward searches (not just non-repeated searches) to start just after the target line, and all backward searches to start just before the target line. Thus, forward searches will skip part of the displayed screen (from the first line up to and including the target line).  Similarly backwards searches will skip the displayed screen from the last line up to and including the target line.
