Hi Riley,

This is an interesting question.

Cat command is a very powerful command in Linux OS, this is the very beginning level command in Linux.

Cat command is used for reading text file.

You need add |less after the  cat command then you can scroll your file.

Example: #cat [file name] | less

Cat is one of the most frequently used command on Linux operating system.

It is used to display contents of files.

Syntax : $cat   /Directory/file

It is also used to concatenate file which means create new file by combining the contents of the initial files.

The original files will not be modified or deleted.

Syntax : $cat   file1   file2  

Cat has many options and the one you need it to display all the pages is -v .

so you should do it like this $cat  – v       your file
