4.3.1.13. Viewing the contents of text files

You can display the contents of a text file using the cat command:

$ cat README

Dia is a program for drawing structured diagrams.

...(more)...

If you accidentally cat a non-text file, your terminal display can get really messed up. The reset command will clear up the situation:

,l*lreset[[email protected] ~]$  

To display only the top or bottom 10 lines of a text file, use the head or tail command instead of cat .

If the text file is too big to fit on the screen, the less command is used to scroll through it.

$ less README


You can use the up and down arrow keys and the Page Up/Page Down keys to scroll, and the q key to quit. Press the h key for help on other options, such as searching.
