Page-up in tcsh? - FreeBSD

This is probably a really stupid question, but I can't find anything in the manpages. Surely there's a way to page-up in tcsh? The Page Up and Page Down keys do noooothing....

    Just what are you trying to page up into? Maybe all you need to do is
    press the scroll lock key?

    None of the traditional shells (like tcsh and bash) provide such a
    feature. They give you a command line editor but no further screen
    control.

    It's more the task of the terminal emulator to do so; in xterm, for
    example, you can use Shift+PageUp or Shift+PageDown to scroll.

    Just goes to show why you should have a decent understanding of the
    difference between an interpreter and an emulator. Having not grown up
    on such things, I basically never even realized there was a distinction.
    Also didn't realize why there was a scroll lock key until now. Thanks :)
