emacs as a pager?

I am looking for a way to use emacs as my pager command in the shell (for example with man or to scroll the output of an asynchronous command with a large amount of output). I use emacsclient as my $EDITOR, but emacsclient cannot use stdin as its input file. Is there an emacs extension that does this, or failing that, a pager that uses most of the emacs buffer motion and search commands?
